Roasted Acorn Squash Wedges

You’re going to love these Roasted Acorn Squash Wedges. This acorn squash was a farmer’s market find. As the winter months approach, there are fewer options at the market, which can be exciting because it forces me to create new recipes with ingredients I wouldn’t usually cook with. I enjoyed these wedges with a pesto dipping sauce. So good.

Acorn squash is a winter squash packed with Vitamin A, B6, C, and potassium.  They’re so flexible, and can be used in stews, soups, salads, and more.  These wedges work perfectly as a side for whatever main dish you want! They go with almost everything. They’re nice and simple so you can whip them up easily.

Parmesan acorn squashBegin by cutting the acorn squash in half and removing the seeds from the middle. (Note: you can always keep the seeds and roast them as a light snack to munch on throughout the day!) Cut each half of the squash into wedges and place the wedges on a nonstick baking tray.  Drizzle on that lovely olive oil and sprinkle your oregano and dill.  Bake for 20 minutes, flip, and then bake for another 20-25 minutes until these babies are nice and crisp.  

Top the wedges with some parmesan cheese to make them even more delectable.  As we said before, you can make these and enjoy with the dipping sauce, as a side, or as a nice crispy snack.  You’ll love any way you decide to make these puppies!

    Do you peel the squash first, or do you eat it with the skin on?
    Excited to try this recipe with my family over the holidays!
