Roast Acorn Squash

If you’re not familiar with roasting acorn squash, you’re in for a treat! It’s easy and so delicious. Here’s what to do:

Cut your squash lengthwise and scoop out all seeds and strings with a spoon. Brush the inside with oil or you can spray with avocado oil spray or linseed oil spray and sprinkle all over with salt.

Place the squash halves face down on a parchment lined baking sheet. Roast in a 400° F oven for 22-30 minutes. The squash is done when the top is easily pressed in when pushed and beginning to caramelise on the inside.

Handle the roasted squash carefully before stuffing it’s got!

Since you prepare the filling for awhile the squash roasts, the overall time needed to prepare the stuffed squash is around 30 minutes.

Common spices you probably already have in your pantry

If you want to you make it ahead time, you’re luck because it’s an easy one to prep! You can roast the squash and make the filling, then simply store both tightly covered or wrapped in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

You can reheat the filling and squash separately in the oven covered or the fill the squash and rehear it altogether in the oven. Just make sure you cover it in the oven so the tops don’t

I have develop a passion for natural and healthy life style, starting with a vegan life style including regular exercising each day. Which helped to feel inspired and happy within myself. my diet is very restricted due to severe allergies! When ever a food triggers a hostile response from the body's immune system the result is an allergy attack, which on occasion may be life-threatening although it's relatively simple to identifying problem foods, avoiding them completely is not always easy. My journey with allergies hasn't been easy "but" it has helped me to becomes a stronger person and would like to share and encourage others to never get discouraged, there's always light at the end of the tunnel if you keep persevering.
