We love acorn squash because it is an extremely nutrient dense food, meaning that it is very rich in nutrients. We love the sweet and savory taste of squash, making it a great addition to stews, salads, and soups! One cup of acorn squash provides one-third of your daily fiber needs. It doesn’t get any better than this! This recipe is a great side or snack and is very fun and easy to make. Nutrition tip: choose a low fat cooking method like roasting or steaming to make the best of all the nutrients it provides. Also, be sure to use a quality chef knife to cut the large acorn squash as it can be difficult to cut with a dull knife.
