Maple Cinnamon Delicata Squash Salad w/ Vegan Jackfruit ‘Bacon’

  • Author: Jasmine Briones / Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 1-2


  • 1 delicata squash
  • Organic maple syrup
  • Organic cinnamon
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 10 large brussels sprouts
  • 23 cups fresh spinach
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 lemon
  • 1/41/2 cup jackfruit bacon (recipe below)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Wash and dry all of your produce and set aside.
  2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Half and deseed the delicata squash, then slice into 1/2″ pieces. Place on to the baking sheet and lightly drizzle with maple syrup and sprinkle with cinnamon. For the bare side facing down, instead of flipping and repeating the aforementioned process, I rubbed it into the excess that was on the sheet to put it to use. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until caramelized.
  4. Meanwhile, place the brussels sprouts in a vegetable steamer, and steam for 10-15 mins, or until very soft. Remove and slice in half. Add seasoning as desired.
  5. Place the spinach into a bowl and drizzle with lemon juice. Top with halved tomatoes, sliced avocado, brussels sprouts and squash.
