Steamed Acorn Squash with Lime and Scallion
Almost effortless to prepare, but gratifying. Lime and scallions make unlikely companions for squash, but it works. Lime juice tempers the sweetness of the squash, while scallions lend a savory touch. A nice diversion from more traditional squash recipes.
|1 ||small acorn squash, halved and deseeded |
|2 t||fresh lime juice |
|1 T||olive oil |
|1 ||scallion, chopped |
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Place squash halves on a steamer rack in a saucepan of boiling water. Cover tightly with foil and bake for 15 minutes or until tender. In a small bowl, whisk together freshly squeezed lime juice, oil and salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle over hot squash halves and serve.
