FAQs

Which is healthier, butternut or acorn squash?

Acorn squash is healthier than butternut squash! That’s because it is more nutrient dense with folate, calcium, magnesium, and potassium. 1 cup of acorn squash has more potassium than 2 whole bananas. 

What does acorn squash pair well with?

The best things to serve with acorn squash are salty, savory meat, rice, quinoa, and even cheese. Try some of the ideas on this list, like the sausage stuffed squash or creamy stew. This vegetable is also mildly sweet, so it makes a great dessert like a pie or cookie, for example!

Can you eat the skin of acorn squash?

Yes, you can eat the skin off an acorn squash! Whether baked, roasted, air fried, or cooked another way, the skin is tasty and safe. Plus, it is packed with many nutrients like vitamin A, Vitamin K, and iron. You can even air dry the acorn squash skin into chips.
