Maple-Roasted Acorn Squash Rings

Maple-Roasted Acorn Squash Rings

Food is such a seasonal thing, and even though squash is available in every season, it still reminds me of fall. This recipe for Maple-Roasted Acorn Squash Rings makes an elegant and healthy fall side dish.

Acorn squash is easy to recognize; it looks like a giant acorn. It’s one of the most popular winter squashes because of its versatility. Acorn squash comes in three colors: green, orange, and a new white variety. I always choose the green acorn squash because it’s available year round at my grocery store. An average acorn squash weighs about 1 pound.
