One secret to enjoying the flavors you loved in your favorite foods before you started your Genesis Health Solutions weight loss plan is finding good substitutions. You can still enjoy the flavor of maple syrup in this dish by substituting it with pure maple extract. Combined with the cinnamon and richness of roasting, this squash is delicious. One half of a squash equals 1 serving of cooked vegetable and 1 serving of fat for one meal.

Cinnamon Maple Roasted Acorn Squash

INGREDIENTS

1 Acorn squash, cut in halved and seeded

2-3 Tablespoons Kerry Gold butter

Himalayan sea salt, to taste

1/8-1/4 Teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4-1/2 Teaspoon pure maple extract (no sugar)

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil. Pierce flesh of squash with a knife around the edges and center. Take a large piece of foil and crumple into a soft ball, then sit the halved, seeded squash into the ball firmly to hold upright while roasting.

 

Melt butter into small pan and add 1/8 tsp. cinnamon and ¼ tsp. maple extract and stir. Taste before adding more to your liking. With a spoon or basting brush, spread the butter mixture over the flesh of the squash.

 

Roast for approximately 40-50 minutes, or until tender when tested with a knife. About halfway through roasting, baste the flesh with the juices from the middle of the squash.

  • I can’t begin to tell you how much appreciation I have for the Tanzar’s and this program. Truly a life changing decision when I invested in this program. Genesis is a very apt title but it’s also like a rebirth. I’m on my second life which is healthy, happy and pain free. I lost 85 lbs in 4 months, maybe less time. That is about 15 lbs more than my goal. So excited about the rest of my life!
