Maple Curry Squash

Have you ever had a buttercup squash? We received one of this yummy squash in our CSA this past week and it was a first for me.

 It is a delicious winter squash that looks more like an acorn than acorn squash does. Buttercup squash has a sweet and creamy taste and can be used in place of any recipe requiring squash. 

This recipe is very easy and make the perfect side dish, snack or appetizer.

1 squash
2 tbs olive oil
1/4 cup maple syrup 
1 tsp curry powder

Preheat the oven to 400. Cut the buttercup squash in half, removed the seeds and cut into thin slices. Once the slices are but use a vegetable peeler to remove the skin. Place the slices into a mixing bowl, add in the curry, syrup and olive oil and toss until everything is coated evenly. Spread out the squash on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Remove and serve warm.
