"How sweet it is!!! The original recipe in a community cookbook specifies 400F and I haven't had any problems - but I need a new stove; however, I've decreased the temperature to 350F based on the comments & suggestions from Zaar chefs."
Serving Size: 1 (247 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"Very, very good. I had one small acorn squash and about 1/3 of a butternut squash. I peeled and cubed them both and tossed in the sauce mixture. The butternut sq. retained more shape and color, while the acorn sq. cubes absorbed more of the sauce and got browner and more pungent. It was a good combination. Will make again for sure."
"OK...I havent made this but I plan on it here soon so thats why no star rating.I thought I would share a tip with everyone.To peal a squash is quite an ordeal...try this.Cut him in half length wise and cut the stem off.This creates a flat spot,now turn it over and use this to stand him up.Grab a veggie peeler and start peeling away.The strips dont come off long and clean like a potato;they are shorter and you have to keep at it but you get rid of the tough skin and if you flip him over you can go the other way to get the stuff you missed.You end up with a nicely peeled squash and your sanity in tact.Hope this helps and I look forward to trying this!Thanks"
"I ended up with more of a sauce than a glaze like I was expecting, but I guess my expectations were just off. Very tasty. We will make again (possibly with other types of squash)"
"I liked them! They definitely end up with what I would consider a bit of an Asian flare, and I think they would be a great compliment to a chicken dish of the same cuisine. Very easy and quick.. most Roasted Squash recipes take 50+ minutes to complete, however my rings were done in 35 - 40 minutes. Thanks!"
"I haven't actually tried this with squash yet. I made this recipe using yams instead, but it was delicious. I'm certain the squash would be wonderful as well. I sliced the yams about 1/2" to 3/4" thick. I think if they were any thicker, they might not cook through quickly enough for the glaze not to burn. I also used tamari for the soy sauce, with good results. Nice recipe, and it smelled wonderful coming out of the oven!"
"This is a nice way to fix squash. I have found that if you microwave the whole squash for 1 minute turn and microwave an additional minute it makes it much easier to cut. I cut the squash in half and then sliced it. After it was in slices it was so easy to trim away the fibers and seeds. Cooked it at the 350 degrees and it was delightful with my New Years dinner."
"I am putting in a new review on this since I made this again. The recipe has been changed from the last time I made it, so anyone who has this printed out may want to check to make sure they have an updated copy. The last time I made this, it was a disaster- the oven temp called for was way too high and subsequently, the squash burnt pitch black on the undersides. I could not eat that then, so I had to give a low review. But I have made this at the new oven temp (350F) and this recipe works out quite well. I like the savory taste the soy gives the squash, and it goes together very well. It is a little messy to eat trying to get the peel off, but it is definitely worth it. I am glad I gave this recipe a second chance and would happily make it again. Thanks for posting!"
"This was really tasty! I wasn't sure if I was supposed to peel the squash first. I did end up peeling it which I think is the way I prefer it. I served this with grilled chicken, a corn/pea mix, and brussel sprouts. Next time I will decrease the soy sauce about 1/2 a tbsp for our preference. But really sweet and yummy way to fix acorn squash! "
"All I can say about this squash dish was FABULOUS!!!! I did turn the heat down to 325 in my air convection oven. Also I increased the honey mixture yummmmm! I have to say, if anyone is looking for a wonderful squash dish, this has to be one of them, well worth trying. WE just loved it! I'll double this and be making this for my Christmas dinner. Thanks so much CL for sharing!....Kitten:)"
"This was yummy! Unfortunately, halfway through cooking my oven went wacko and decided that it wanted to be closer to 500º than 400º and it burnt the glaze. So, I tranferred pans, got the heat back down and let this finish cooking. Very tasty sweet and salty way to serve squash. I did make this with butternut, so I didn't really get rings- I did chunks instead. When I read the recipe, I thought that it was weird that it called for you to baste the squash- I thought the mixture would be too thick, but it was surprisingly thin, espeically once it was heated. Very yummy way to serve squash! We had for dinner with Easy Rice Congee #76014."
"This is so yummmmmmmmmm.... made it the first time with butternut squash... couldn't wait to make it again... I DO LOVE SQUASH... just an added note..... I used butternut squash the first time and was able to peel it... this time i used acorn squash and started to peel it... unless you have some magic way to do this I found it impossible... so I cooked them with the peel on and they turned out great... the peel comes off easily, which i did before I served it... Everyone wants the recipe Lee"
"Never having had acorn squash before I thought this would be a good recipe to try them. It was Simply delicious. My husband has never had them either and he was impressed (he is not a fan of squash and pumpkin other than pumpkin pie). The glaze was savory and sweet and complimented the taste of the squash."
"I think this is my new favorite way to fix winter squash! Sliced rings covered with glazed honey-soy-garlic-yummmy! Thanks CL!"
"I used acorn squash for this. I found the soy sauce was so strong and pungent it overwhelmed the rest of the flavors. If I made this again, I would reduce it to teaspoons instead of tablespoons."
"This is good and yes...sweet! I left out the salt, trusting the soy sauce to provide enough for my DH's low salt diet. Also made a mistake (didn't read directions) and cut the squash into cubes. I went ahead with the recipe at 350 for 25 minutes and it was perfect. The cubes had a nice glaze and color. For kicks I added some slices of eggplant that I found in the fridge. The sweet sauce was terrific combined with the eggplant! I now have a sauce for eggplant and a sauce for squash! thanks."
"This was great! I didn't add the salt, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly.
Thanks for sharing!"
"Loved these... wish I could make them a bit less sweet, but I think they'd lose all of the best parts! Thanks for the recipe!"
"I love this recipe! I cut my squash into cubes instead of rings, used low-sodium soy sauce & did not add the salt. Delicious!"
"This was much spicier than I would have anticipated . . . there's not that much pepper, but I didn't enjoy the pepperiness of it (is that a word??!!). I may try again and decrease the pepper. Thanks for sharing! :O)"
