Simply Squash
Serves: 4
Cuisinicity Tip: So that I can divvy up the salt and allspice about equally for each half, what I like to do is place the total amount of salt and allspice in the palm of one hand and just use a pinch from it for each half!
  • 2 acorn squash, cut in half, cored and seeds taken out
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ tsp allspice
  • ½ tsp salt
  1. Preaheat the oven 375.
  2. Flatten out the bottom of each half of the acorn by cutting the rounded part (not too much so that you do not make a hole in the bottom) so it's not wobbly on the baking sheet.
  3. Stand the acorn up on baking sheet so that the cored cavity is up and drizzle olive oil equally among the 4 halves.
  4. Add salt and allspice equally among them* (see little Tip) as well and, using a pastry brush, "paint" the topping to combine olive oil/salt/allspice so that it is well blended thoroughly all over the flesh of the squash.
  5. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until soft and golden.
