Author Notes

This squash was made with the last squash from our garden last year. I wanted to treat it simply, compliment it sweetness and give it just enough pop to make sure that it was memorable. I cooked this in coconut oil which also added a nice depth of flavor to this simple recipe. —Rinku Bhattacharya /Spice Chronicles
