2 acorn squash
2 tablespoons Maple syrup

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh sage, chopped

Pomegranate seeds


The first thing you want to do is preheat your oven to 425 degrees F
Cut the acorn squash into rings (see video for help!) and remove the seeds from the middle
Put the squash rings on a parchment lined sheet tray
In a small bowl mix together the maple syrup, melted butter, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, rosemary, sage, and thyme until combined
Brush one side of the squash with half of the liquid and reserve the rest
Put it into the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes
After 10 minutes take them out and flip the squash over. Brush the remaining liquid on the other side and put them back into the oven to let them cook for another 10 minutes
Once cooked, sprinkle the top with pomegranate seeds, and serve
That’s it. An easy, unbelievably delicious side dish that is not only Holiday worthy, but easy enough for a simple weeknight meal. Enjoy!
