Parmesan Crusted Delicata Squash

Adapted from: https://www.washingtonpost.com/recipes/parmesan-crusted-delicata-squash/12506/?utm_term=.c66e259d422c

Makes 3 servings

Each serving provides: 3 Green, 2 Healthy Fats, & 2 Condiments

INGREDIENTS:

4 cups delicata squash

½ cup scallions

2 tablespoons olive oil

¼ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

¼ cup parmesan cheese

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a 12-by-17-inch rimmed baking sheet with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Grease the foil with nonstick cooking oil spray.

Arrange the squash and scalion slices on the baking sheet. Drizzle the oil over them, then season them with salt and pepper to taste, mixing the squash and onion gently with your hands to coat evenly. Rearrange so the slices are loosely, evenly layered. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until they are soft but not falling apart. (If you are using two smaller pans, keep a close eye on the slices, which might cook faster if they spread in a single layer in those pans.)

Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the roasted squash and onion, then roast for 5 minutes so the cheese melts/softens.

Use a spatula to transfer to a platter or individual plates; serve warm or at room temperature.

Crustless Pumpkin Pie

Source: http://www.sandyskitchenadventures.com/2015/10/baked-kabocha-or-crustless-pumpkin-pie.html

Makes 4 Servings

Each serving contains 1 Green, 1 Condiment and 1 Snack (optional) per Serving

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups roasted kabocha squash

1/4 cup unsweetened cashew or almond milk

2 egg whites

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/2 tsp maple or vanilla extract

1 packet NuStevia

28 Walnut halves

DIRECTIONS:

Prepare kabocha:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking pan with non-stick foil. If the skin is too tough to cut, place kabocha in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes. Cut the squash in half.

Spoon out all the seeds. You can cut or peel the skin off before baking, but I found it easier to peel after baking. Do whatever you prefer. Cut the squash into wedges. Lay the wedges on the prepared pan. Spray the wedges with non-stick cooking spray. Bake for 30 minutes. Flip the squash over. Spray with cooking spray. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until it is cooked.

Let cool.

Once cooled, peel or cut off the skin with a knife. Normally I eat the skin when roasting but for this particular recipe, I like to remove the skin for a smoother richer taste.

Measure out 2 cups of cooked squash, without the skin. Use the rest of the squash for another time.

To make pies:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray 4 ramekins with non-stick cooking spray. Add 2 cups of squash, without the skin, and the rest of the ingredients, except walnuts to the blender. Blend until smooth. Pour mixture into ramekins. Bake for 15 minutes.

Reduce heat to 350 degrees. Remove ramekins from oven and evenly distribute the walnuts on top of each ramekin. Bake for an additional 25 minutes.
