Savory Baked Acorn Squash

Jessica Braider
While the preparation for this dish may be incredibly simple, the flavor is wonderfully complex. The sweetness and nuttiness of the squash paired with the smoke heat of the curry powder will fill your taste buds with glee! Once you've mastered this version, feel free to play around with other flavor combinations and spices as well.
