Delicata Squash with Orange and Pistachios

By December 29, 2011Uncategorized

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

2 shallots, halved and sliced

1 large delicata squash, halved lengthwise, seeded and thinly sliced

1 teaspoon orange zest

3/4 cup orange juice

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

2 tablespoons chopped salted pistachios

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add shallots and cook, stirring, until softened and beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Add squash, orange zest and juice, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook, stirring once, until the squash is almost tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Uncover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is absorbed and the squash is tender and beginning to brown, 12 to 15 minutes more. Garnish with pistachios.  From EatingWell, Nov/Dec 2009.
