Roasted acorn squash slices make an outstanding fall side! Buttery and herby, the whole sweet and savory combo is addicting and delicious!
Paleo herb roasted squash slices is a crowd pleasing side dish recipe with no grain, no gluten! Just lots of fun flavors!
I grew up eating acorn squash my mom’s classic way: roasted halves filled with butter, brown sugar, and black pepper.
As much as I avoided pretty much ALL vegetables at all costs…I loved preparation! I still do in fact!
But sometimes want to try new things, so I started experimenting with different ideas.
This is a great side dish that comes together quickly and has everyone who has tried it swooning! It tastes buttery, and almost cheesy….even though there is no cheese.
I have even enjoyed it as a nest underneath molten eggs for a breakfast treat!
I like the chewy texture of the skin, but it is easily removable after it if roasted if you prefer.
Want a fancy look to your roasted acorn squash slices?
As soon as you scoop out all the pulp and seeds, you can make whole slices of the acorn squash…they look like little flowers or stars! So pretty!
