Author Notes: This is a song about a fall-y goard-y side dish. The name says it all. It's easy, and it's sweet, and it's spicy, and you want it. Fa la la la la. End of song. —Kendra Vaculin
Serves: 3 as a side
medium acorn squash, cored and cut into wedges
tablespoons olive oil
cup (scant) maple syrup
red pepper flakes (to your desired spiciness; I like a good hit)
- Preheat oven to 400° F.
- Toss the squash wedges in a large bowl with olive oil and maple syrup.
- Spread into one layer on a baking sheet, and then sprinkle with salt and red pepper flakes. Roast for 40 to 50 minutes or until squash is cooked through.
