Acorn Squash Toss

(6 Votes)
7 Min
15 Min

Always a favorite, Acorn Squash is flavorful, colorful, and healthy. We can't go wrong!

What You'll Need

  • 1 acorn squash (about 1-1/2 pounds) (see note)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted

What to Do

  1. Cut squash in half, and remove seeds. Cut squash into 1-inch pieces.

  2. Arrange squash in a steamer basket over boiling water. Cover and steam 10 to 12 minutes or to desired tenderness. Set aside.

  3. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat until melted; add garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, until garlic begins to brown. Add squash, soy sauce, and salt, tossing gently. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve immediately.


Leaving the skin on the acorn squash not only adds to the flavor and fiber of this dish but also makes preparation a snap! The skin tenderizes as the squash cooks, and it's yummy eaten right along with the tender flesh.

Fixed this last night-(-couldn't find the sesame seed)-left out the salt(soy sauce is salty, anyway)-IT WAS DELICIOUS!

Didn't know that you could eat the skin of acorn squash. I'm going to try this recipe.

For you 2 who cannot cook without pictures, there is a recipe in the list to the right for Roasted Acorn Squash. Go to that 1 and LOOK at IT. And be glad you're not blind. You'd have a hard row to hoe if you have to have pictures for EVERYTHING,
