This dish was so simple it makes me crazy that I have not done it before. And delicious to boot. To see where I pulled this "recipe", if you can call it that, just click the blog page here.
And I followed the recipe with one exception. I used earth balance instead of butter. I am copying the recipe below in case that blog page disappears in the future. I want to be able to keep the recipe :-) This blog is one of my FAVORITE Slow Cooker blogs, I adapt most recipes as we do not each much for processed foods, but the ideas are invaluable.
1 acorn squash
2 TBSP Earth Balance
sprinkling of Brown Sugar
Cut the squash in 1/2 and scoop out the seeds. Then cut just a little bit of the skin off the bottom, so that the squash will sit flat in your slow cooker without tipping over. Use a fork to poke some holes in the squash. Sprinkle just a little brown sugar over the squash, and add about 1 TBSP Earth Balance to each 1/2, cut the Earth Balance up into several small pieces. Cover and cook on low for about 7 hours. Once it is done just scrape the nice tender squash off the sides and mix it all up inside the shell. It is DELICIOUS!! I am making this recipe again tonight, squash was on sale at the grocery store!
