Roasted Delicata Squash with Butter and Miso

Lately I have testing out some new Thanksgiving side recipes and wanted to do something different than traditional roasted squash. After trying some roasted vegetables with miso in a restaurant recently, I decided to try some at home with squash. The recipe is incredible simple – just squash tossed with melted miso and butter, but the results are delicious. Rich in flavor and low in calories. They taste great with a squeeze of lime or lemon on top. I still haven’t decided yet if I will make these for Thanksgiving, but I will definitely be making it as a side dish.

    I have discovered delicate squash this year and absolutely love it. It’s hard to find, though. I live in Nashville, TN, and found it at Trader Joe’s. It didn’t last long and I haven’t been able to find it anyplace else. Lucky you that you can buy it.
    My question is about miso. I believe it has something to do with soy but am not sure what it is. Does it have a strong flavor?
    Note to Donna – It’s oblong, like a zucchini, and has green and yellow stripes. Don’t peel it as the skin softens when roasted. It’s delicious!
