Acorn Squash Soup with Pistachios, Black Bread, and Apples
Squash is such a good flavor absorber that I keep coming up with new things to do with it. With a little imagination and the ingredients in your fridge, you likely have the makings of a good squash soup. The combination here works as a complete meal, especially for, say, lunch on a cold winter weekend. The black bread croutons add crunch and body, and the apples call up hints of a savory apple crisp. For a heartier meal, skip blending the squash and serve it roasted, alongside duck breast or turkey leg. You can also substitute cauliflower for the acorn squash. — Franklin Becker, Good Fat Cooking Click Here to See More Soup Recipes

acorn squash
Stuffed squash is one of those great “kitchen sink” dishes that allows you to repurpose all kinds of leftovers without anyone being the wiser. In fact, whenever I have a little extra room in the hot oven, I’ll bake off a few squash and then store them in the refrigerator. Later in the week, when I’ve got a few nights’ worth of leftovers, those squash’ll be ready and waiting to be stuffed and baked. An aioli like the one here adds in an awesome creamy-spicy kick.Recipe courtesy of Guy Fieri.

Acorn Squash Soup
Recipe Courtesy of Dr. Josh Axe, DNM, DC, CNSTis the season for soup. After all, nothing’s more comforting on a cold night, and nothing’s easier to prepare. This soup combines two squashes—acorn and butternut—in a dish that’s satisfying and also super healthy. Not only is butternut squash full of vitamin A and C, but it also yields a creamy consistency that is often hard to create without using actual cream.You may also be surprised to find ginger and cinnamon in this recipe. In addition to adding great flavor, they are health-boosting, warming spices that have been used in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine to improve digestion and heal the body for thousands of years.Combine those ingredients with gut-healing bone broth (I recommend chicken bone broth, though regular veggie broth works, too), and you have a dish that’s equal parts comforting and nourishing. -Dr. Axe

Sausage-Stuffed Acorn Squash
Squash can be intimidating. Ok, steam it and serve it as a purée, or peel, cube, and roast it until crispy in the corners, tender inside, and with a rich caramelized exterior. Delicious. But after a couple of times, it can get monotonous. For someone gluten- and corn-free like me, finding healthy carbohydrates to satisfy my hankering can be a challenge. Stuffed acorn squash is one of my new favorite go-tos. Start with sausage, or for vegetarians, a base of brown rice. Supplement with sweeteners (honey or maple syrup) and spices as you wish, then add a variety of flavorings from cherries and pine nuts to something exotic, like pineapple, coconut, and chopped macadamia nuts. You can even try greens — kale, miso, and a garnish of scallion sounds delicious, doesn’t it? Click here to see the Simple Ingredients Made Spectacular story.
