Delicata Squash Chips

BySarah Axtell, ND February 18, 2021

Delicata squash is my favorite. The flesh is sweet and creamy. The skin is edible, making this squash particularly easy to prepare!

And not to mention the health benefits…squash is full of gut-loving fiber and immune-supportive nutrients such as vitamin A and vitamin C.

You can season these “chips” anyway you wish. If you know me, I am always trying to find more ways to cook with the super-spice, turmeric; therefore, in this recipe, I season the squash with turmeric, cinnamon, and smoked paprika. It is the perfect combination of savory and sweet.

Enjoy these as a snack or on top of your salad.


  • 2 delicata squash, washed, ends cut off, halved length-wise, seeded, and cut into thin half-circles (about 1/4 inch thick).
  • 2 TBSP avocado oil
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine squash, oil and seasoning. Mix well to evenly coat the squash.
  3. Lay the slices out in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Roast for 30 minutes, flipping half-way through.
