Acorn squash may be an autumn produce item, but if you store it properly, you can enjoy it all year long! This beautiful produce item is so fun to use in the kitchen due to its versatility, gorgeous colors, and multiple flavor combinations. In this recipe, we added the spice Garam Masala, which adds an exotic flavor profile to an already tasty food item. Not only is squash a beautiful food, but it’s highly nutritious thanks to a rich amount of vitamin A, vitamin C, fiber, vitamin B6, manganese, copper, potassium, and folate! Vitamin A is important for eyesight, the production and activity of white blood cells, and regulating cell growth, but a diet supplemented with excess vitamin A (over 3,500 micrograms per day) could lead to increased risks of hip fractures or some birth defects (1). The recommended dose of 3,000 micrograms per day is considered safe, and can be obtained through foods rich in vitamin A, such as squash, sweet potato, carrots, kale, and red bell peppers. So go ahead and enjoy this delicious squash recipe–it’s perfect for a savory dessert or a pre-dinner treat.
