Cookbook author Sarah Copeland is known for beautiful, simple food that we want to eat every night, and her newest title, Instant Family Meals, is full of exactly that. This maple-cinnamon squash agrodolce recipe is the perfect example: It’s gorgeous but requires few ingredients, and comes together in all of 30 minutes.
“One of my earliest food memories is of my mom’s baked acorn squash,” Copeland writes, “with pools of brown-sugary butter floating in its roomy cavity—an American classic. Squash is inexpensive, nutrient-dense and easy—though time-intensive—to prepare. I’ve tweaked my mom’s recipe for a quicker weeknight side dish with a touch of agrodolce (Italian for ‘sour and sweet’) thanks to a blend of cider vinegar and maple syrup, so the squash, not brown sugar, is front and center.”
As for the squash, she suggests Delicata, a striped squash whose skin you can eat—but any smallish winter variety, like sweet dumpling, carnival or acorn will do.
