I have just gotten into eaten winter squash.
The other day I bought an acorn squash and decided that I wanted to use some maple syrup with it.
I also had some fresh thyme, so googled to see if maple syrup and thyme would go together.
The do and this recipe tasted fantastic.
I love the flavours of the maple syrup and thyme together.
Thyme and Maple Acorn Squash
1 acorn squash
2 tsp butter
2 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp fresh thyme
maple syrup to drizzle
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Wash and the acorn squash in half. Remove seeds. Place in baking dish. Spread 1 tsp of butter over both halves of squash. Sprinkle 1 tsp of brown sugar over each half. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp of thyme over each half. Then drizzle maple syrup. Bake in 350 degree until squash is soft. I then added a small amount of fresh thyme over the top before eating. Enjoy.
This would make a great side dish for two or a meatless vegetarian dish for one. I ate mine as a main meal and it was delicious.
