I bought one last week and decided to introduce my husband to something new. Actually we had a few new things. Pomegranate, which he had never eaten, acorn squash and quinoa. Two of the three were a hit, the last one he did NOT like at all. He will eat couscous if I fix it but he does like the Israeli style, it is larger and taste more like pasta.
The squash was easy, well after I cut it open. It is a tough little bugger to cut open, then the inside is sort of like a pumpkin with the stringy seeds. Just scrape those out and place the squash up side down in a baking pan. I added a little water in case. Placed in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. Then I flipped them over and sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top and finished the baking process with another 15 minutes.
