Roasted Acorn Squash Recipe

Serves 4, as a side


  • 2 acorn/pepper squash;
  • 3 tbsp clarified butter, tallow or coconut oil;

Acorn squash preparation


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 F.
  2. Cut each squash in half, but leave the seeds in. Place cut end up on a baking sheet and roast them for about 50 minutes to an hour, long enough so that the flesh is fork tender. Remove once cooked and let cool for several minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet over a medium heat, saute the onions in the cooking fat. Cook for close to 10 minutes, until the onions are translucent and begin to be golden brown.
  4. Add the garlic to the skillet, followed by the coriander, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Continue to cook for about 2 minutes.
  5. Remove the seeds from the squash and discard. Spoon out the tender flesh and discard the skin. Roughly mash up the squash and add it to the skillet. Mix well. Only leave on heat long enough to blend flavors.
Serve alongside a tender roast or steak. Enjoy!
