Wedges of oven-roasted delicata squash, seasoned with smoked chili powder and fresh lime, served with homemade avocado mayonnaise.
Makes a great side for Smoked Beef Brisket..
Split delicata squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Split halves into wedges, arrange skin-side down in a heavy skillet. Season with fresh lime juice and smoked chili powder and roast in a 350 degree oven until tender/crisp and golden brown, about 20-30 minutes.
For the mayonnaise
1 pastured egg yolk at room temperature
1 teaspoon homemade mustard
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
3/4 to 1 cup raw organic avocado oil
1/2 ripe avocado, mashed
generous pinch of sea salt
In your food processor, place egg yolk, mustard, lemon juice and salt and process until well blended, about 30 seconds. With the motor running, add oil in a very slow, thin stream. The mayonnaise will thicken as it stands.
