Roasted Squash and Hazelnuts (A Nonrecipe)

Could Squash and Hazel be any clearer? They cannot dwell within the dictates of a syllabic society that obstructs their free will. Death to the pixel oppressors! The only thing they will categorically agree upon is being drizzled with hazelnut oil and given a few cracks of sea salt.

Kabocha, Acorn, Delicata, Butternut, Carnival or Sweet Dumpling? Whatever. Squash is squash (but don’t tell Squash I said that).

Let me reiterate: Roasted squash, roasted hazelnutshazelnut oil and cracked sea salt is not a recipe. It’s a dance on the palate. A sate of the plate. It’s mindful meditation for the mid-section. It’s vegan, paleo, kosher, non-GMO, gluten- and recipe-free. It’s breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Squash and Hazel have made their demands. If you agree to their wishes, enjoy.

  1. Looks delish. Do you have the recipe? GREG

  2. I've got no hazelnut oil at the moment, but I think squash and almonds and almond oil might dance together instead. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Hi Sarah. Yep, that sounds like a winning combo!

  3. Yum. I wish I had this on a plate in front of me right now!
