It’s #MeatlessMonday! So that must mean I’m Linking Up with The Fit Foodie Mama and Running on Happy.
I don’t know what the weather’s been like in your neck of the woods, but it is clearly getting cold and windy here. I think we’re heading for an early winter. One of my favorite winter vegetables is acorn squash. My grandmother always made this in the winter and it was so quick and easy to prep. The smell permeates the house and the sweet ingredients you put in the squashes cavity make it oh so buttery and delicious!
Start by cutting each squash in half and scooping out the seeds. Don’t throw those seeds away…this is a 2 for Dish!
Next, add some butter, honey, cinnamon and brown sugar in the squashes cavity.
Bake for 1 hour (until tender) and serve!
Now, take those seeds and get all the squash fibers off them. Spread them on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and salt, toss to combine and bake.
These are delicious on their own or served on top of a salad!
