  • Cut acorn squash in half. Roast them cut side up on a baking sheet for 50 minutes or until the flesh is just tender. Let the squash cool for 20 minutes.

  • In a large skillet over medium heat melt the butter; saute the onions. Stirring occasionally, cook the onions for 10 minutes, or until they begin to brown at the edges. Mix in the garlic, coriander, and nutmeg. Cook the mixture 2 minutes more; then remove the pan from the heat.

  • Spoon the seeds and stringy middle out of the squash, and discard these. Spoon out the flesh, chop it and add it to the onion mixture. Discard the skins. Heat and stir the squash-onion mixture, then season it with salt and pepper. Serve the squash hot.

Adding chicken broth after the squash was incorporated with the onions really helped give the dish a much nicer consistency. Also try adding a splash of balsamic vinegar to boost the flavor. Read More

it needs some sort of sauce or gravy. it's too dry by itself. it might make a good soup. Read More

Rich flavorful and nutritionally superior to other dressings that might accompany hardy meats and roasted fowl. Onions and spices provide a flavor boost that would make squash a more attractive dish for people who otherwise would resist trying it. Read More

This is very tasty! I added cinnamon and used molasses instead of brown sugar and it turned out great. It was a bit dry maybe it needs a bit more oil or butter. I'll make it again. Thank you. Read More

I made this for a potluck for a woman who wanted a savory squash dish instead of the usual sweet type. Didn't have coriander on hand so I used a bit more onion garlic and nutmeg. It turned out quite well I got multiple compliments and not a bit was left over! Read More

This recipe is really good though missing a few key spices. I added spinach and chili powder to give it a little more flavor and added some tofu to make it a meal. I really like the sauted squash though never would have thought of that myself. Read More

This was great. I added some apple sauce for extra moisture (instead of extra butter) at it was a big hit. Read More
