Fall/winter brings tons of squash to the farmer's market's and into season in general. Acorn squash is one of those vegetables I was always confused about what to do with, but I started making acorn squash butter (I need to write up a recipe for this!) and I just started with this one that I found in the Fixate cookbook. Absolutely delicious!
-2 acorn squash
-1/2 tsp sea salt
-1/2 tsp pepper
-4 tsp unsalted, organic, grass-fed butter
-4 tsp honey
-1 tsp cinnamon
-1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Core/seed acorn squash.
Coat cooking sheet with spray.
Place squash, cut side down on sheet.
Bake for 35 minutes, or until tender crisp.
Turn cut side up.
Season with salt and pepper.
Drizzle each half with 1 tsp butter and 1 tsp honey.
Sprinkle evenly with nutmeg and cinnamon.
Bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes, or until tender.
This is definitely an unconventional recipe for me, but it was DELICIOUS!
1/2 acorn squash = 1 serving
This came STRAIGHT from the Fixate cookbook (I did NOT create this recipe!) There are SO SO SO many good recipes in this book. It's WELL worth the purchase!
