Baked Acorn Squash

This dish can certainly serve as a side dish on your table - or star as the dessert! 

Ingredients:

  • 1 Acorn Squash

  • 1 Tbsp Butter or Coconut Oil

  • 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar (optional)

  • 2 tsp Maple Syrup

  • Sea Salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F

  2. Use a large, sharp, knife to slice the acorn squash in half from step to tip. Use a spoon to scrape out the seeds and stringy center of the squash, then use a knife to score the insides in a cross hatch pattern. 

  3. Place the squash cut-side up in a baking dish, with 1/2 inch of water in the bottom. Spread the butter or coconut oil over both cut sides. Sprinkle with a tiny dash of salt, dribble with maple syrup, and drop the brown sugar into the center (if using).

  4. Bake in the oven for 60-90 minutes, until squash is fork tender and tops are slightly browned. Remove and let cool before serving.
