Mashed Acorn Squash

Prep Time 25 mins
Cook Time 5 mins
Servings 8


  • Oven
  • Food Processor
  • Baking Sheet


  • 3 medium acorn squash
  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp cloves
  • ¼ cup chopped nuts (optional)


  • Cut the top and bottom ends off of the acorn squash. Cut them in half and dig out the seeds.
  • Brush the inside with melted butter and roast, face down for 25-35 minutes depending on size. They are ready to remove from the oven when the inside feels soft when you press it.
  • Once the squash is done, dig the insides out and add to the food processor with the maple syrup, cinnamon, and cloves.
  • Process the ingredients until smooth- if you prefer a chunkier potato like texture, use the pulse option instead.
  • Top each serving with chopped nuts and enjoy!
