Check it out…one of the easiest ways to cook acorn squash, or butternut squash, or pumpkin, is in your crockpot (also known as a slow cooker). It’s so ridiculously simple that you’ll want to do it often!
Just take an organic acorn squash, butternut squash, or pumpkin. Be sure to get one that will fit whole in your crockpot. Wipe it off with a dry cloth, and then set it in your slow cooker, put the top on, and set the crockpot on ‘low’.
That’s it! Cook an acorn squash or pumpkin on the ‘low’ setting for 8 hours, a butternut squash for 6 hours.
Remove from the crockpot (use oven mitts, or two large spoons, because it will be hot!) and place on a cutting board. For acorn and butternut squash, cut in half lengthwise, for a pumpkin cut off the top. Scoop the seeds out, and then season the squash with a little vegan margarine, and either salt and pepper, or nutmeg, or whatever else you like, and eat!
So easy, so good, and so good for you!
