Roasted Acorn Squash

So simple, so tasty and so great for you!

Acorn Squash is high in antioxidants to fight free radical damage it also aids in boosting your immune system, decreasing inflammation and reducing high blood pressure. In less than 5 minutes you will have this recipe in the oven and ready for dinner!

Ingredients:

  • 1x Acorn Squash
  • 1/2 tsp. Maple Syrup
  • Kosher Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions:

Pre-Heat oven to 400.
Cut Acorn in half and scoop out seeds. Once the seeds are removed, score the squash with a knife in a criss-cross pattern, this allows for the flesh to cook evenly and lets the seasoning seep deeper into the vegetable.
Once scored pour maple syrup into it’s core. Using your hang rub maple syrup evenly over the squash then lightly sprinkle with Kosher Salt and Black pepper.
Place on cooking sheet, flesh side up and back for 25 minutes or until you see the Acorn skin curl up over the flesh (see picture for reference).
Let rest for 5 minutes. Pairs well with pork and white fish.
