Coconut Roasted Acorn Squash

No ratings yet

This acorn squash would be a lovely addition to any fall dinner menu.

Acorn squash is one of our favorite fall ingredients to work with. It’s sweet, full of vitamins and nutrients, and has a vibrant yellow color. Our Coconut Roasted Acorn Squash recipe is very simple, but the flavors are bold and unique. The acorn squash is tossed with coconut oil, coconut flakes, and curry powder, then baked in the oven. The curry powder and coconut give it a mildly Indian flavor, so it goes well with the sweetness of the acorn squash.

This acorn squash would be a lovely addition to any fall dinner menu, and would also pair well in an Indian-themed dinner alongside our Chicken Biryani or Indian Chicken and Rice.
