Ingredients
  • 1 squash any kind except spaghetti squash
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 1-2 tbsp maple syrup
  • salt
  • pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Use a big knife to cut your squash in half (be careful!) and use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and pulp.
  3. Use the olive oil to grease the bottom of a baking dish that's big enough to fit your squash. Chop squash into crescents and arrange in oiled baking dish.
  4. Melt butter and use a pastry brush to brush it all over the squash. You can skip this step if you want to, but I do like the buttery flavour.
  5. Drizzle maple syrup (or honey) over the squash. You can also re-drizzle them mid-way through baking (extra tasty). Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  6. Cover with foil and bake for about 50 minutes, or until you can pierce squash with a fork. (Re-drizzle with maple syrup part way through cooking if you want). At the end, take the foil off and broil for a few minutes.
  7. After cooking, sprinkle with fresh salt, which really brings out the taste (both squash and maple syrup are fairly mild). Garnish with parsley if you want.
  8. Enjoy! :)
