Squash has got to be one of favorite vegetables. Whether it’s spaghetti squash, summer, delicata, acorn, or butternut…I love finding ways to use it. It’s versatile, flavorful, and full of nutritious benefits like fiber, B vitamins, vitamin C, A, and magnesium. With lots of holiday parties last weekend, I thought I’d make a dip/appetizer with the acorn squash for you all to try at home too!
Squash & Goat Cheese Dip
- 2 squash Acorn squash – if you use butternut, you’ll likely need about 1 lb
- 5 oz goat cheese
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp paprika (smoked paprika for extra good flavor)
- 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
- 1/2 cup pistachios (shell removed)
Pre-heat your oven to 425. Cut your squash in half and scoop out the seeds
Line a baking sheet with foil and turn your squash face down, bake for 50-55 minutes
Once squash is cool enough to touch, scoop it out, place in bowl and mix in the goat cheese, salt, and paprika
Take about half of your pomegranates & pistachios and mix them into the tip. Use the remainder for the top. Serve warm or cold!
