There’s no doubt – fall is here. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a big fan of embracing this time of year. One of the ways to do this is to indulge in some of the yummy fall foods that are at our disposal. Acorn squash is one of my faves. Try this out the next time you’re craving some nutritious and delicious fall food.
1/2 of acorn squash, scoop out seeds
1 T extra virgin olive oil
1/4 c raw mixed nuts and cranberries (or any mixed nuts/fruit)
1 t brown rice syrup
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brush extra virgin olive oil all over the acorn squash half. Add mixed nuts and cranberries in the middle. Drizzle brown rice syrup over the top of the squash and mixed nuts/fruit. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour until squash is soft and flakes easily. Let cool for 5 minutes.
