September 7th is National Acorn Squash Day! We have found the perfect recipe to help you celebrate!
1 large acorn squash (or 2 small)
⅓ cup shredded parmesan cheese + more for garnishing
2–3 Tbsp. fresh herbs or 1 tsp. dried (we suggest: thyme, sage, rosemary, or oregano)
1 Tbsp. ghee or butter, melted
½ tsp. garlic powder
¼ tsp. salt + more to taste
⅛ tsp. black pepper
Preheat oven to 400℉.
Cut acorn squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Then slice each half into ½-inch thick slices.
In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and toss to combine.
Transfer to a large sheet pan. Using your hands, gently press parmesan cheese onto the squash for maximum coverage.
Bake in the oven for 25 minutes or until squash is cooked through and parmesan cheese is crispy and slightly browned. Garnish with additional parmesan cheese and herbs, if desired.
