Have you ever tried acorn squash? My first time having it was only a few months ago, and now I’m hooked. I have been eating as much as I can while it’s still in season. Today I will share with you my Roasted Paleo Acorn Squash.
I’ve always been a simplest when it comes to food. No sauce, light dressing, and plain dishes. But this only heightened when I started eating real food. On a delicious vegetable like this you really only need butter and cinnamon! Granted, I do write a food blog now and love to be creative with dishes, but I still believe going back to the basics is easier and tastes great!
I can’t overexpress the importance of prepping your food ahead. This is one dish I enjoyed as leftovers for quite a few days. Scoop the squash out of the “skin”, and store in a Tupperware. Prepping food ahead will help you stay on track. When I get home from a long day of studying, I usually want food right away! Waiting an hour for an acorn squash is just not going to do. But if it is cooked already, I can put my oven on broil and reheat it easily.
