    About this recipe: A deliciously simple and hassle-free dish. Acorn squash is cooked in the microwave with butter and dark brown soft sugar. It's sweet enough to serve as a dessert or a side dish with anything you fancy.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 acorn squash, halved and seeded
    • 50g butter, divided
    • 4 tablespoons dark brown soft sugar, divided

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Place both halves of the squash cut side up on a microwave-safe plate or dish. Put 30g of butter and 2 tablespoons of dark brown soft sugar into the cavity of each half.
    2. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes in the microwave on full power. Rotate the squash a couple of times to ensure even cooking. When the flesh is soft, scoop out soft flesh with the sugar and butter and place it in a bowl. Mash it a little to blend the ingredients. Serve in a bowl or your could even serve it in the shells.


    If acorn squash is unavailable, use butternut squash instead.
