anyone can make acorn squash!

11 May

Another simple recipe for a perfectly delicious acorn squash.  Takes 2 minutes prepare and then you just leave it in the oven for an hour.  Pick a squash that feels heavy for it’s size and has no blemishes on the outside.  This amazing veg can stay on your counter for days without going bad!  Here’s a super easy recipe that enhances the sweetness…

What you need!
1 acorn squash
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp butter

What to do!

1.  Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  Cut your squash in half and scoop out all the seeds.  Place the halves, cut side up, in a shallow oven safe dish.  In each half, put half the sugar, salt and butter in the center.  Cook in the oven for about an hour until orange flesh is soft.

2.  Take the squash out of the oven and let cool for 5 minutes.  With a spoon, scoop out the flesh into another bowl.  You can either mash it with a fork, break up the pieces with the spoon or take a hand held blender and blend it super smooth.  Enjoy!

Approx Costs:

acorn squash – $2.00
seasoning – $1.00

Total $3.00 for 3 servings or $1.00 per person
