Sriracha, honey & soya sauce glazed acorn squash

Squash is definitely a favorite in my kitchen. It’s such a versatile vegetable that can be combined with so many flavours and ingredients. Not to mention squash is totally a fall staple. So be prepared for more recipes featuring this star ingredient!

When I picked up some acorn squash recently at the grocery store I wanted to experiment with a new recipe. Lately I’ve been drawn towards Asian inspired dishes (like this Chicken Fried Cauliflower Rice or Sesame Salmon) SO I thought why not find a way to incorporate these flavours into an easy squash dish for the fall. And if you are a Sriracha lover like myself – this one will be a no brainer!

With a few key ingredients and about 25 minutes of baking time, you’ll be well on your way to these Sriracha, honey & soya sauce glazed acorn squash slices.

Ingredients for Sriracha, honey & soya sauce glazed acorn squash

1 acorn squash
2 tbs Sriracha
2 tbs olive oil
2 tbs honey
1 tbs soya sauce
salt and pepper

How to make Sriracha, honey & soya sauce glazed acorn squash

Preheat your oven to 400F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Slice the acorn squash in half and scoop out seeds. Then Continue slicing to create 1/2 inch thick circle slices. Try to cut the slices as evenly as possible so that they cook consistently.

Pour the remaining ingredients into a bowl to make the marinade. Using a fork, whisk the ingredients until they are mixed together. Pour the marinade into  a Ziploc bag -leaving about 2 tablespoons in the bowl. Next add in the acorn squash slices. Close the bag and toss them around until full coated. (If you aren’t pressed for time you can let them sit in the Ziploc bag for 20-30 minutes before baking).

Line the circles on the parchment paper and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Test with a fork to make sure they are cooked (should be a soft consistency).

Once they are fully cooked, take them out of the oven and drizzle with the leftover marinade from the bowl. Serve immediately!
