This wonderful pumpkin dish is a new favorite of mine! I usually pair burrata mozzarella with tomatoes, but it goes really well with lots of vegetables, especially delicata squash. If you can’t find a delicata squash, thinly sliced toasted acorn will do the same.
What is Delicata Squash?
Delicata squash is available in fall and winter, as are other winter squashes like butternut, acorn, and pumpkin. And as the name suggests, this pumpkin has a delicate peel or skin that is 100% edible – so no exfoliation is required!
The sweetness of the roasted pumpkin goes perfectly with the creamy burrata, spicy pomegranates and crispy pistachios. It looks and tastes super sophisticated, but with minimal ingredients and only one sheet pan for preparation, it’s just as perfect for your holiday table as it is for a simple side dish during the week – it goes with almost any protein!
