A healthy recipe with a bright citrus flavor.
Steamed Acorn Squash with Lime and Green Onions
- 1 small acorn squash
- 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 green onions, chopped fine
Halve squash lengthwise and discard seeds and strings. Using outer ridges as a guide, cut squash lengthwise into sections. Arrange squash on a steamer rack in a saucepan and steam over boiling water, covered, until tender, about 15 minutes.
While squash is steaming, in a bowl whisk together lime juice, oil, and salt and pepper to taste. On a platter drizzle squash with dressing and sprinkle with scallion.
