Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Slice acorn squash in half through the stem and scoop out all the seeds and flesh. Then slice along the natural ridges (about a half inch to an inch thick depending on the size of your squash) and throw the slices into a large bowl. Toss with shallots, olive oil and salt and pepper and mix well until squash are evenly coated.
  3. Divide squash onto two prepared baking sheets and roast in the oven for about 30 to 40 minutes, turning each piece over and rotating pans halfway through, until squash are tender and caramelized. Transfer to a serving platter.
  4. While squash are roasting, combine honey, apple cider vinegar and pinch of salt in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and allow mixture to simmer for about 5 to 8 minutes, watching it closely, until reduced by a half cup. Drizzle glaze over squash and top with pomegranate seeds, pine nuts and mint. Enjoy!
