If you can’t find pomegranate molasses, make your own by combining 1/4 cup pomegranate juice with 1 teaspoon honey in a small saucepan over moderately-low heat. Cook for 2 minutes, or until reduced down to 2 tablespoons.

00 min


00 min


1 small delicata squash

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons pomegranate molasses* See Note

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

2 Red Anjou pears, halved, cored and cut into 6 wedges

8 ounces Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved (keep any loose leaves)

3 large shallots, peeled, trimmed and quartered lengthwise

1/4 cup fresh pomegranate seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 425F. Halve the squash lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Cut into 1/2-inch thick, moon-shaped slices.

  2. Whisk together the olive oil, pomegranate molasses, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the squash, pears, Brussels sprouts and shallots and toss to coat evenly.

  3. Spread the mixture on a large rimmed baking sheet in a single layer with the cut sides down. Roast tender and browned on one side, 20 to 25 minutes.

  4. Loosen the pears and vegetables from the baking pan with a firm spatula and toss together.

  5. Transfer to a serving platter and sprinkle with the pomegranate seeds. Serve hot or at room temperature.
