You’re going to love the combination of sweet delicata squash, savory miso and salsa-like stuffing!


  • 15 ounces delicata squash
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon white miso or awase miso paste
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

For the miso salsa

  • 1 small plum tomato (diced)
  • 1 stalk celery (diced)
  • 3 tablespoons green, red, yellow or orange bell pepper (diced)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 2 teaspoons white or awase miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Cover a small baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Cut the delicata squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds with a spoon.
  4. In a small bowl, mix miso sugar and olive oil. Brush the inside of each half of the squash and place them, brushed side up, on the parchment paper.
  5. Baked for 30 minutes, or until tender.
  6. Meanwhile, put all the ingredients for the miso salsa in a bowl and whisk until the miso paste has dissolved. You can whisk with or without the vegetables, it works both ways. Set aside.
  7. Take the delicata squash out of the oven, transfer to a plate and fill each half with miso salsa. Serve.


You can make the miso salsa up to 6 hours before serving.
