First off, Happy New Year’s Eve! Hopefully 2015 is filled with awesome things for you!
I discovered two spectacular components of this Curried Delicata Squash only a few short months ago — curry powder and delicata squash. Weird, right?
I didn’t eat my first curry until I was 24 years old (in 2014), and I can easily say that I was missing out on something wonderful my entire life. I grew up loving squash, but my mom always bought acorn or buttercup squash for us to share, and smaller squash varieties like delicata or sweet dumpling were “gourds” that were bought for decoration. I honestly shudder to think of all the delicious and versatile squash that’s bought to rot each year because people think it looks pretty but don’t know how to prepare it!
Hopefully, this recipe will get someone out there to try eating delicata squash instead of discarding it as a kitchen decoration.
