“A great way for kids to eat squash!”


  • one spaghetti squash, cut into quarters, seeds removed
  • 1 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 TBSP unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 TBSP dark brown sugar (Sucanat recommended)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • sea salt to taste
  • fresh cracked pepper to taste (it really adds to the dish)
  • a few pecans…..or lots!


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Place squash wedges in a baking dish with 1/2 cup water added to the bottom.
  3. Mix other ingredients except pecans together and spread onto squash.
  4. Bake until almost soft (about 20 mins), then sprinkle with pecans and bake until soft and nuts are toasted (about 5-10 more mins).
