Coconut Acorn Squash Recipe

Publisher Photo
Save yourself some time in the kitchen and toss the squash in the microwave for a truly quick dish. Sometimes squash can be a bit tasteless. I conquer this by adding a bit of mango chutney and coconut. It really makes the flavor pop. —Deirdre Cox, Kansas City, Missouri

MY REVIEW

I DO NOT like acorn squash, usually. My husband's grandmother used to make roasted acorn squash for him, so it's very special to him. I saw this and filed away as something I would make to surprise him, and it was actually delicious! Definitely a keeper.

Oh my goodness, this was wonderful! Loved the mango chutney mixture! I've made it twice in the past few weeks, and I'll definitely be making it again.

This is sooo good! My family loved it and will make a repeat performance at next year's Thanksgiving dinner. Even those who might not like squash may like this. Didn't even need to add sugar.
