For the squash:

For the sauce:



  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Cut the squash into either rounds (delicata – can leave skin) or chunks (acorn). You want the pieces to be about an inch thick.
  3. Toss the squash with the maple syrup and avocado oil and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Spread evenly onto a baking sheet and bake for about 40 minutes, flipping halfway through. You want the squash to be soft on the inside and golden brown and caramelized on the outside.
  5. While the squash is roasting make the sauce by combining all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together until you have a smooth creamy sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve the squash either on a bed of the sauce or thin with water and drizzle the sauce over the squash like a dressing.
  7. Top with pomegranate seeds and pepitas/pumpkin seeds
