Curry Roasted Acorn Squash

Sharing is caring!

This simple curry roasted acorn squash is the perfect easy Thanksgiving side dish. Packed full of flavor and ready in under 30 minutes!

Growing up my Thanksgiving table looked a little bit like this:
Turkey (obviously)
– Mashed potatoes
– Green bean casserole
Cheesy potatoes (my favorite!)
– Yeast rolls
– Baked beans with bacon on top
Cornbread sage stuffing
– Deviled eggs
– Canned yams topped with marshmallows (my least favorite thing on planet earth)

If I had put down a platter of curry roasted acorn squash I’m pretty sure my family would have looked at me like I had a third eye. First, my dad hates squash because apparently as a child his mother made him eat it stuffed with rice and ground beef. I don’t know, that sounds pretty good to me. I guess if I were forced to eat it growing up I would/could feel different.

However, in my modern day household I can serve whatever I want for Thanksgiving. I guess that’s the good part about being an adult. You get to do what you want when you want.

Basically I’m just a full grown child with power.

I think the addition of curry roasted acorn squash is the perfect Thanksgiving side dish. Why not add a little curry to a traditional American meal?
