Although you may have passed acorn squash many times in the grocery store but kept on going, fear no more! This is hands down one of the easiest recipes ever and makes a fantastic side dish. Acorn squash is also loaded with nutrients and naturally supports the immune system (great for the season!).
- 1 Acorn Squash
- 1 Tbsp. organic unsalted Butter, at room temperature
- ½ Tsp. Cinnamon
Note: Acorn squash is very versatile-you could use coconut oil with sea salt and black pepper or even get creative and do stuffed acorn squash!
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Add a little water to a rimmed baking sheet or glass dish.
- Very carefully, cut the squash in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds with a spoon (you can bake these later if you want!).
- Place the squash face down on the baking sheet or glass dish and bake for 30 minutes.
- Pull squash from the oven, turn over and spread butter on top. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
- Bake for another 10 minutes and serve as is. Enjoy!
