Servings 4 servings


  • 2 acorn squash
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons dukka spice see Notes


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Place a baking sheet in the oven to heat up.
  • Cut the squash in half lengthwise and remove the seeds with a spoon. Cut the squash into half-moon shapes by cutting down each rib section. Place them in a bowl. drizzle with the butter and sprinkle with the dukka. Lay each piece flat on the hot baking sheet and bake until just tender, 12 to 16 minutes. The side touching the pan should be golden brown. The other side will be lighter but speckled with dukka. Serve immediately.


If you can’t find dukka spice, combine 2 tablespoons ground hazelnuts or pecans with 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, 1⁄2 teaspoon ground coriander, and 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin. This will make a fine substitute in a pinch.
