Miso-Glazed Squash: Tips, tricks, and Tools
Reusable baking mat: It’s always a pain when food sticks to the baking sheet. That’s why we love our silicone baking mats. Clean up is a breeze and they’re reusable! No more one-use parchment paper or tin foil here.
Squash variations: Although we used butternut squash for this recipe, you could certainly use another variety of winter squash like acorn and kabocha squash.
Save the seeds: Reserve the squash seeds for later to make roasted squash seeds. A great way to utilize a generally tossed out part of the food.
