This is the first time I ever made acorn squash. It’s actually the first time I’ve eaten acorn squash! They’re like tiny pumpkins. The seeds are almost exactly the same and it smelled like raw pumpkin. I often see acorn squash sliced in half and stuffed with some sort of grain and other vegetables. I decided to slice it into rings and roast it with a bunch of fall spices. I topped the warm squash with Wild Friends Honey Sunflower Butter and pomegranate seeds.

Another great thing about acorn squash is that the skin is edible! Β You just have to make sure you cook the squash until the skin is soft enough to eat. Β This is also a great vegan Thanksgiving dish!

Recipe:

  • 2 medium sized acorn squash, sliced into rings (about 1 inch thick) & seeds removed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 & 1/2 Tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • Wild Friends Sunflower Butter
  • pomegranate seeds
