Roasted Acorn Squash with Orange-Ginger Dressing
- Total Time
A terrific addition to any fall meal. And since each squash half is a serving, it’s easy portion control, too.
uncooked acorn squash3 medium, cut in half and seeded
cooking spray3 spray(s)
fresh orange juice¾ cup(s)
ginger root2 Tbsp, fresh, minced
unsalted butter2 Tbsp
packed brown sugar1 Tbsp
orange zest1 Tbsp
- Preheat oven to 375ºF. Coat a roasting pan or baking dish with cooking spray. Place acorn squash, cut side down, on pan and spray outside of squash with cooking spray. Roast until desired doneness, about 30 to 45 minutes.
- About 6 or 7 mintues before squash is finished cooking, in a medium oven-safe bowl or pan, combine orange juice, ginger, butter, sugar and zest. Place in oven and cook just until butter and sugar melt; remove from oven and stir. (Or you can heat the dressing on the stovetop over low heat.)
- Serve each squash half like a bowl with dressing poured inside. Yields 1 squash half and about 3 tablespoons of dressing per serving.
