This oven-roasted acorn squash is the perfect winter food to add as a side to any meal! Spring is so close, yet so far, and it’s the perfect time to still enjoy warm, hearty meals. This squash is also a great way to get an extra boost of veggies to any meal!
You might fool whoever you’re feeding by making them think these are potatoes – but they might even taste better. Yep, I said it. Acorn squash is such a delicious veggie to roast and season in the oven because they have a light, sweet, taste, and taste like a butternut squash too. They’re super easy to make, and take about 30 minutes to prep.
Ingredients you’ll need to make this oven roasted acorn squash
You will need 2 acorn squashes, some spices, and breadcrumbs. Adding the breadcrumbs to your acorn squash will give it a delicious crunch and added flavour. For the spices, you will need some salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, turmeric, and parsley. You can also add some cayenne pepper if you like spice!
How to prepare your squash
Once you cube and season your squash, place it on a lined baking tray. I love using my silicone baking mats since they’re reusable and better for the environment. You don’t have to spray them either so you don’t have to worry about food getting stuck to them! I use them for almost everything that has to go in the oven.
