FEATURING: Acorn squash. Did you know that acorn squash has edible skin? It's a little thicker than Delicata squash but it is still lovely! This is a truly easy way to make acorn squash in a pinch... and to eat the skin. It can be served as a side dish or further chopped in cubes and added to salads. Don’t have cumin seeds and smoked paprika?
