Cooking with Acorn Squash requires some creative vegan recipes! But don't be hesitant to try - Karen's Holiday Acorn Squash is as simple as it's four fresh ingredients. Hearty with a hint of sweet, this is one of our favorite plant based dinner recipes for family. Karen C. writes from Evans, Georgia: We hardly ever used to buy Acorn Squash in the past, because we didn't know how to cook it creatively. Not any more! Guaranteed to become a family favorite:"
1 Acorn Squash
1 cup Organic Raisins
1 cup Orange Juice
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
Soak raisins in the orange juice while preparing and cooking the squash. Cut the squash in half cross-wise. Scoop out and discard strings and seeds. Place cut side down in 1/2 inch of water in a baking dish. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes, or until tender. Remove squash and drain remaining water. Place half of the soaked raisins with orange juice in each squash half, sprinkle with cinnamon, cover, and return to 375 oven for approximately 10 more minutes. ENJOY!
