Servings 4


  • 1 lb acorn squash
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 clove freshly minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp cup honey
  • ¼ cup apple cider
  • ¼ tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Line a sheet tray with parchment paper.
  • Cut the squash in half, remove the seeds, and then place flat side down and cut ¼- inch thick c-shaped wedges.
  • Arrange squash wedges in a single layer on the parchments paper and set aside.
  • Roast the squash for 20-25 minutes.
  • While the squash is roasting, heat butter, garlic, honey and apple cider in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir until butter has melted, and the sauce has reduced slightly, about 5 minutes. The sauce should be like the texture of honey so it sticks to the acorn squash.
  • Stir in salt. Set aside
  • When the squash is cooked and slightly golden, remove them from the oven and drizzle with the garlic butter sauce.
