Graduate Gourmet Recipe: Roasted Acorn Squash

Now that I have my awesome vegetables from Washington Green Grocer, I have been searching for the best way to cook my acorn squash.  I found a simple, healthy way to roast them thanks to Gina from Gina's Skinny Recipes.  I modified it slightly with what I had on hand, and it tasted delicious!

1 acorn squash, cut in half, seeds and fibers removed
2 tspn light Butter
2 tspn honey (you can also use brown sugar or molasses)
dash of ground cinnamon
dash of salt

  • Preheat oven to 350°.  
  • Rub 1/2 teaspoon light butter on each half of the squash
  • Top with honey and cinnamon.  
  • Place squash in a baking dish, cut side up, and add 1/4 cup water to the bottom of the pan.  
  • Cover and bake 50 minutes. 
  • Uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving.
