Serves 4-6


    • 2 delicata squash or butternut squash (about 4 pounds total), halved crosswise, seeded, sliced into 1/2"-thick rings
    • 3 pounds sweet potatoes (about 7 small or 5 medium), cut into 3/4"-thick rounds
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
    • 2 - 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
    • 15 small sprigs thyme, divided
    • 8 ounces fresh or frozen cranberries
    • 2 cups red wine vinegar
    • 1 - 1/2 cups sugar

how to:

    1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Toss squash, sweet potatoes, and oil in a very large bowl. Add red pepper flakes and 2 tsp. salt and toss to combine.
    2. Arrange on a rimmed baking sheet with 12 thyme sprigs. Roast, tossing once halfway through, until squash is golden brown and fork-tender, about 30 minutes.
    3. Meanwhile, cook cranberries, vinegar, sugar, and remaining 3 thyme sprigs and 1/2 tsp. salt in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until cranberries are soft and sauce is thick and syrupy, about 25 minutes.
    4. Transfer vegetables to a platter, then drizzle some of the cranberry agrodolce. Serve remaining agrodolce alongside.
