Gluten-Free Winter Squash — Menu Plan Feb. 23

By · Print This Post Print This Post

WinterSquashWinter Squash is this week’s theme for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap. For the roundup of Gluten-Free Menus, visit Angela’s Kitchen this week.

Winter squash is usually harvested in the fall, and stored and eaten throughout the winter months. In fact, because they store so well, many winter squash are often available year round. The wide variety of different types of winter squash include Acorn, Buttercup, Butternut, Carnival, Delicata, Kabocha, Pie Pumpkin, Spaghetti, Turban Squash, and many more.

The winter squash I cook most frequently is spaghetti squash. If you don’t already cook it, you might try the method that works for me. Although not a favorite of the rest of the family, I like to cook it as a side dish for dinners, so I can eat leftovers for lunch.

Although not as often, I also like to cook acorn squash. I cook it similar to the spaghetti squash, roasting halves of it cut-side down in the oven. Then, after it bakes for 25 minutes, I’ll turn the squash over, add a little non-dairy butter and coconut sugar to the hollow of each half, and put it back in the oven for 5-10 minutes. My kids have been hesitant in the past to eat it, but have finally decided they really like it!
