- Small delicata squash
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- Pinch of cinnamon
- 1/4 pecans, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut squash in half lengthwise, remove the seeds, and place in a baking pan filled with about an 1/2-inch of water. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the flesh is soft. The squash will be hot to the touch, so use an oven mitt to handle. Scoop out the squash flesh with a spoon and place in a small bowl. Add a tablespoon or two of pure maple syrup and a pinch of cinnamon. Mix until well combined. Top with toasted pecans. Serve warm. It’s so simple, it’s ridiculous.
I originally posted this recipe in 2007. I think it’s so good that it’s worth sharing again. Enjoy.
