1.5 lb. acorn squash

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp maple syrup

1/2 tsp smoked paprika

1/4 tsp salt


Preheat the oven to 400ºF. Wash the squash well, then dry with a clean towel. Carefully cut the acorn squash in half lengthwise , then scrape out the seeds with a spoon. Slice the squash crosswise into 1/2-inch wide slices. In a small bowl, stir together the olive oil, maple syrup, smoked paprika, and salt. Place the sliced squash in a bowl, then pour the maple syrup glaze over top. Stir the squash until it is evenly coated. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then arrange the seasoned squash slices on the sheet in a single layer. Use a rubber spatula to scrape all the remaining glaze out of the bowl and onto the squash slices. Roast the squash slices for 40 minutes, or until it is very tender. Season with a pinch of salt, then serve.
