Sweet and Spicy Roasted Acorn Squash
6 servings
  • 2 large Acorn Squash
  • ½ cup Olive Oil
  • ½ cup Domino® Golden Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Sriracha or Hot Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

Step 2

Wash acorn squash well. Cut in half along the length, then cut each half into half-ring slices, about 1/4 inch each. Line acorn squash slices up in a single layer on prepared baking sheets; set aside.

Step 3

In a small bowl, whisk together all remaining ingredients until smooth.

Step 4

Brush a generous layer of sauce over each of the acorn squash slices, then flip and brush the other side as well.

Step 5

Bake for about 40 minutes, until cooked through. Turn oven to broil. Cook for an additional 3-5 minutes, until the tops start to caramelize and serve.

Chef's Tip

Sweet and Spicy Acorn Squash is best enjoyed fresh, but can be prepared a day or two ahead of time, if necessary. For best results, serve at room temperature instead of reheating.
