Snackshot of the Day: Delicata Squash

Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal

Delicata squash is just as creamy and delicious, if not more, as its more popular cousin butternut squash.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of delicata squash. Delicata squash is one of the many delicious squash varieties we'll soon see popping up at farmers' markets. However, these are smaller (therefore easier to carry), and a cinch to cook. Simply slicing and roasting delicata squash with a little olive oil and sea salt makes for an ideal side dish in the winter months. Try with some sautéed kale and brown rice for a complete meal.
