Hi, hello. It’s the reality police here, sending out a bulletin to all healthy recipe writers: Please stop comparing rings of roasted delicata squash to deep-fried onion rings! If you want onion rings once in a while, just go get them—and make sure they’re the crispiest, saltiest ones out there.
I’d rather enjoy these caramelized delicata rings for what they are—perfectly crispy rounds of squash that hit an ideal savory-sweet balance. The tangy ranch dip has beneficial microbes for your gut thanks to the fermented kefir. Note: Delicata skin is edible!
