I went out grocery shopping and bought an acorn squash, does anyone have any good recipes to use making this? I have never made anything with acorn squash before. :confused:

I've only had acorn squashed baked. Doing a bit of research on Google, though, it looks like you could grate it for salads or cut into slices to eat, with or without a dip.

I have never had one... So I looked up some recipes for you, and this was all I found :)
Squash and kumquat soup
~~from Shazzie at Shazzie.com
Half an acorn squash (or whatever squash you can find)
1 yellow or orange bell pepper
1 teaspoon of freshly peeled lemon rind
1 small hot chilli
1 tablespoon of fresh coconut meat
1 clove of garlic
5 dried apricots (rehydrated)
1 sundried tomato
1 cup of sunflower or almond milk
1 cups of water
If you have a juicer, juice the kumquats, bell pepper, coconut meat and apricots, then add everything to the blender and blend until everything is liquidized. If you don't have a juicer, chop all solid ingredients and add everything to your blender, blend everything until it's liquid and then
strain the soup. If you want a thicker soup, add some of the pulp back in.
It's nice to serve this with a little grated squash, some sunflower seeds
and some chopped spring onions on top.

Both sounds great, I may try to use it as a dip and make the squash soup, although I need to go back to the store to get some more ingredients, I was thinking it would be good blended as a soup also. :)
