This is super simple and super tasty side dish. It pairs well with pork or chicken.

Maple-Ginger Acorn Squash

  • 1 acorn squash
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • salt/pepper to taste

Scoop seeds out of squash and slice into 1″ slices. Arrange squash in a single layer on a baking sheet. In a frying pan over medium heat, melt butter and add syrup and ginger. Whisk until incorporated, about a minute. Pour over squash and mix well. Roast at 375 degrees until tender, about 20 minutes.

    I’ve used maple syrup with squash plenty of times but never thought or heard of using ginger. Will definitely give this a try. Thanks, Greg.

  2. It is that time of year isn’t it? Loads of winter squash & pumpkins to turn into delectable delights. This looks just yummy. Love the addition of ginger.

    The ginger sounds like a lovely pairing in this dish. Maple syrup is a no brainier but that ginger is very creative!

    Thank you! I normally cut the squash in half and bake cut side down. But this is much “prettier.”

  5. Great with Delicata squash, too!

    Looks delicious! We do something similar, but with honey and cinnamon. I love that it’s time for winter squash!

    I really like this idea for two good reasons – the squash is ready in 20 mins. AND it looks delicious!!
