Maple Citrus Glazed Roasted Acorn Squash
Roasted until perfectly tender and then glazed with a tangy maple citrus glaze, this roasted acorn squash is an insanely-easy holiday side that's pretty to look at and even better tasting!
Servings 8 servings
- 2 small acorn squash peeled, halved, and sliced into 1/4-in thick rings
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons orange juice concentrate
- 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds toasted
Toss squash rings with olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Arrange in a single layer on a greased baking sheet. Roast acorn squash at 400F 20-25 minutes until squash is tender.
Make the glaze: In a small saucepan, bring maple syrup, orange juice, zest, and spices to a simmer over medium heat until glaze is reduced and slightly thickened.
Remove glaze from heat and immediately drizzle over roasted squash. Sprinkle squash with toasted almonds and serve warm. Enjoy!
