Makes: 4 servings, about 2/3 cup each
Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

Slice delicata as thinly as you can, toss it in the steamer and you have an almost instant side dish. We like it tossed with dried cranberries, apricots and sliced almonds, but try it with any dried fruit and nuts you have on hand.
