Orange Flavoured Acorn Squash and Sweet Potato


Layers of tender squash and sweet potato with a sweet orange glaze.

Easy Serves
Original Canola Mazola® Original Cooking Spray
1 teaspoon orange zest
2 teaspoons (10 ml) tablespoons orange juice
2 teaspoons Mazola® Corn, Canola OR Vegetable Oil
1 medium acorn squash (about 1-1/2 pounds)
6 - 8 ounces sweet potato
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground mace OR nutmeg

Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Spray one extra-large or two large nonstick baking pans with cooking spray; set aside.

Stir together orange zest, orange juice, and corn oil in a small bowl; set aside.

Trim ends of squash. Cut crosswise into 1/4 inch (6mm) slices (about 12 slices). Using a spoon, remove seeds. Peel sweet potato and cut into 1/8-inch slices.

To assemble, put squash slices in one layer on baking sheet(s). Place 4 or 5 overlapping slices of sweet potato in center of each squash ring. Pour a small amount of orange juice mixture over each stack. Sprinkle with brown sugar and mace, then lightly spray with cooking spray.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until vegetables are tender when pierced with a fork. Use a large, flat spatula to remove slices.
