Type: Vegetables
Serves: 6 people

Recipe Ingredients

1   Acorn squash - (abt 1 1/2 lbs) - deseeded, and cut into 6 wedges
2 teaspoons 10mlOlive oil
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlSalt
1/8 teaspoon 0.6mlFreshly-ground black pepper
3/4 cup 177mlUnsweetened applesauce
2 teaspoons 10mlButter
1/8 teaspoon 0.6mlGround cinnamon
1 tablespoon 15mlAtkins Sugar Free Pancake Syrup - warmed

Recipe Instructions

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Brush squash with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on a jelly roll pan lined with aluminum foil. Bake until squash is fork tender, about 20 minutes.

In a small pot heat the applesauce. Stir in butter and cinnamon; cook 1 minute more.

Serve squash with a dollop of applesauce and a drizzle of syrup.


"To make the squash easier to cut, microwave it whole for a minute. Trim the curved undersides of the squash pieces with a knife so they will lay flat and cook evenly."
