Roasted Acorn Squash


Prep: 10 min :: Cook Time: 40-50 min :: Serves: 1


  • Two small or medium sized acorn squash
  • 2 tbs ghee (or butter)
  • 4 tbs maple syrup
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Ground ginger
  • Fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Extra-virgin olive oil

While preheating oven to 350 degrees, cut acorn squash in half from top to bottom (the stem marks the top). Using a large spoon, scoop out and discard the seeds and stringy layer of pulp.

Place squash hollow-side-up on a rimmed sheet pan. In each half of acorn squash add 1/2 tablespoon of ghee and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup.

Drizzle olive oil along the flat surface (rim) of the squash (or rub rim with a little ghee instead), and sprinkle a dash of cinnamon, ground ginger, salt and pepper all over the squash. Ground fennel and cardamom would work as well.

Roast in oven for 40-50 minutes depending on the size of the squash. Your squash is ready when you can easily sick a fork through the squash. Serve immediately with a fork or spoon. I like to eat mine with a spoon.
