Roasting acorn squash is super easy and delicious. It was one of my favorite fall treats when I was a kid and is still a favorite today. Acorn squash is a low calorie, fiber-full carb packed with vitamin C, potassium and magnesium. If you are on a budget, is also inexpensive!

Check out How To Roast An Acorn Squash to learn more about the health benefits and the different ways to cut and roast this delicious winter squash. To make it just the same as I do, purchase smaller ones so they are perfect for individual servings. Follow the basic roasting instructions, but before sliding them into the oven, add a pat of butter, a teaspoon of maple syrup, a tablespoon of dried cranberries and a sprinkle of salt to each half. When they are done, you can mix them up on your plate right in the shell.
