  • 1 (2 pound) acorn squash

  • ¼ cup butter

  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha sauce

  • 2 teaspoons honey

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Cut the squash in half vertically, and scoop out the seeds in the middle. Cut each half into 4 wedges and place wedges on the prepared baking sheet.

  3. Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in Sriracha sauce and honey; keep warm.

  4. Brush squash with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place wedges on their side and roast for 20 minutes; flip wedges over and roast until squash is soft and edges are caramelized, 15 to 20 minutes.

  5. Place wedges on a serving platter and drizzle with Sriracha butter.
