Maple Roasted Acorn Squash
1 acorn squash, halved, seeds scooped out and sliced into 1/2" wedges
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
Pinch or two coarse ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Toss acorn squash in olive oil and maple syrup, spread evenly onto a rimmed baking sheet and sprinkle pepper evenly over top. Roast for 20-30 minutes until squash is soft and is starting to turn golden brown.
Serve as a side dish to fish or poultry, or toss with a fresh kale salad (massage that kale!!) with a light vinaigrette and some pomegranate seeds.
