Grilled Winter Squash with Crispy Sage Leaves
Recipe type: Direct heat
Serves: 8 to 10
  • 5 pounds winter squash
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Crispy sage leaves (recipe follows)
  • Optional: Grilling grid
  1. Set grill for direct cooking over medium heat. brush and oil grates before grilling.
  2. Slice squashes in half and scoop out the seeds (reserve if you want to roast them) and cut into 1-inch slices. Combine the oil, spices, salt, and pepper and toss until slices are well-coated.
  3. Place on grill/grid and cook for 15 to 18 minutes, tuning at least once halfway through cooking. NOTE: Keep an eye on these especially if you are unsure of where the hot spots are on your grill. As I mentioned above, there is a lot of sugar in squash and they can burn quickly. Transfer to a serving platter and top with crispy sage leaves.
