Acorn squash and walnuts, what a perfect and comforting fall treat, rich in fiber, vitamins A and C, niacin, folic acid, iron, magnesium and more. Not too sugary, this very simple recipe will please everybody. A half acorn squash is worth 116 calories and contains a total of 22g of carbohydrates, including 4g of fiber and 14g of fruit sugar. If you feel this is too much, eat a 1/4 squash.
You just need to buy a few small acorn squashes so each half can serve as a portion. Cut them in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Insert a few walnuts inside, finely chopped.
You can also sprinkle the squash and/or walnuts with turmeric powder, cinnamon, cocoa powder (no calories) or honey/brown sugar if you really want to splurge. The really decadent ones will also add a dollop of butter on the walnuts!
Cook the acorn squash for approximately 20-30min in the oven, pre-heated at 350 degrees. Serve when still warm; I guarantee a delicious experience.
