What You'll Need
- 2 medium acorn squash
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
What to Do
- Pierce the squash a few times with a knife then place the whole squash in a microwave-safe 9 x 13 baking dish. Microwave at 80% power for 9 minutes.
- Remove the squash from the microwave and let cool for 2 to 3 minutes. Cut in half and remove the seeds; cut squash into 2-inch chunks.
- In a large bowl, combine the oil, salt, and pepper; mix well. Add the squash and toss until well coated then return the pieces to the baking dish.
- Microwave at 80% power for 15 minutes, or until fork-tender; serve immediately.
Serve this as is to enjoy the delicate, nutty flavor of the squash, or drizzle it with warm maple syrup or melted butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon-sugar just before serving.
