It’s a month after Christmas and I’m still thinking about how I overdosed on sweets.

So, I thought I’d bring in a sweet veggie this week- something hearty and satisfying.

And what makes a sweet vegetable even sweeter (and better)?


Yeppers, honey glazed veggies.

Mmmmmmm. After baking with honey all week, it’s pretty much all I can think about. The honey adds such a fabulous sugary depth to this dish while the almond milk and vanilla extract give you that blast of sweetness that pairs so nicely with the savory garlic powder atop this ol’ acorn squash.

It’s all about the sweet n’ savory taste, ya know?

You can enjoy this dish alone or alongside some protein for lunch or dinner. I actually just sliced up some leftovers and added it to my morning oatmeal and mid-day smoothie, so you can add it to your breakfast and snacks, too!

It’s totally a dish that you’ll wanna use for when you have company over.

Partially because you’ll look like a professional chef when you whip this baby up for your guests. And partially because it’s totally that dish you’ll go back for ‘just one more bite’ after you’re certain you can’t fit any more food into your belly.


It’s that good.

It’s also perfect to eat alone in your Manhattan apartment watching re-runs of Friends.

I can’t wait for you guys to dig into this one!
