Roasted acorn squash, seasoned with cinnamon, and served with a maple aioli is the perfect simple side dish or snack this season


  • 2 acorn squash
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • Maple aioli


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Using a sharp knife, cut each acorn squash in half starting at the stem and cutting down through the squash. Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds and scrape the sides smooth of each half.
  3. Next, begin slicing each half into 1/4 in. rings. Cut rings in half again, if preferred. Line onto a baking sheet.
  4. Drizzle the cut squash pieces with olive oil, then sprinkle with cinnamon. Place the baking sheet into the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
  5. While the squash is baking, begin making the maple aioli.
  6. Once the squash is done baking, remove from the oven. Drizzle with aioli or serve with aioli on the side.


  • For a spicier version, sprinkle with 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper.
  • For a dairy-free aioli, use a dairy-free mayo
