Acorn squash may not be as popular as butternut, but in addition to its healthy attributes, it can double as dishware.
How many vegetables can make that claim?
Or try this genius approach: Take it out of the oven five to ten minutes before it’s done and crack an egg directly in it. Put it back in the oven until the egg’s baked through and the squash is done, and then dig in.
WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
Acorn squash is the green, speckled round squash you may often pass over for butternut, which tends to get all of the attention. But it deserves its own spotlight since it’s incredibly nutrient-dense. For example, it’s an exceptional source of antioxidants: A one-cup serving satisfies 20 percent of your daily value of vitamin A and 35 percent of your daily value of vitamin C.
