Roasted Acorn Squash & Brussels Sprouts
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min.
Textures, colors, and crunch--this creative, eye-catching combination side dish has it all! The only change I made was to use sugar-free maple syrup to cut carbs a little bit instead of regular maple syrup and you couldn't tell the difference. Keeping this recipe in my "Sides" recipe folder on this site and I will absolutely make it again!
We love both Brussels sprouts and winter squash, so this was a hit at our house! I made no changes, and it was delicious. We have actually had this several times! VFE
I've never tried this combination. It sounds really good. I used to avoid cooking with squash because it was such a pain in the patoot, but now you can get plastic tubs of freshly peeled, cubed squash at many grocery stores. Makes it sooo much easier.
We roast alot of vegetables in this house, but I've never tried this combination and it's a winner! We love brussels sprouts and we love acorn squash, so when I saw this I knew I had to try it. This dish is SO delicious and will show up often on our table. I didn't have any pecans so I omitted them, but will be sure to add them next time.....which will be very soon! Wonderful side dish for any occasion!
Rarely do I make a new recipe for the Thanksgiving Holiday Dinner Table, but when I saw this recipe, I knew it would be a winner, and my guests raved. I doubled the recipe for the 14 guests. And to make cutting the squash much easier, I put them into the microwave for ten minutes. I substituted small pieces of walnut for the pecans, which worked just as well. Due to lack of oven space, I roasted this the day before, then using a large electric skillet on the buffet table, reheated the mixture, adding 1/2 cup apple juice to prevent drying out. My guests want me to make this a regular at our holiday table. Thanks, Angela!
Easy and delicious! This deserves to be a fall regular. I used butternut instead of acorn squash.
