Winter Squash Blossoms

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

Got Stars? How about blossoms? You'll be seeing both with this totally groovy Winter Squash side dish!


Your food should excite you. It should smell good. It should make you feel like a million bucks. And it should look like Ty Pennington got hold of it and gave it a style makeover. This is not too much to ask from a plate of veggies, people. We must set high standards for ourselves. We're totally worth it, you know.

Which is why this Winter Squash Slicesrecipe, flavored with brown sugar, olive oil, and a smattering of anise stars isn't just the sort of side dish you oogle over. No, indeed.

Though it's wickedly decorated, and entirely more handsome than Bradley Cooper, it also smells like Teen Spirit and tastes like a roasted rainbow. Was that last one going a little too far? Quit challenging me on semantics and get in your kitchen! You've got a side dish to bake.

This recipe is so super quick and simple. It'll become an absolute favorite in your house! Just grab an acorn squash.

Winter Squash Recipe

Slice the squash into 3/4" thick slices, then gently scoop the seeds out of the center of each slice.
