  • Grill


  • 1 Acorn squash cut in 8 slices
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 tablespoon Grapeseed oil
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • teaspoon Black pepper
  • teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • Dash Cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Honey divided


  • Preheat the grill to high heat. Clean the grill and then reduce the heat to low (grill temperature should sit around 300-350 degrees).
  • Slice the acorn squash in half. Remove all the seeds with a spoon. Then slice into 8 segments.
  • Drizzle grapeseed oil oven the acorn squash and sprinkle the salt, black pepper, garlic powder on the acorn squash. Rub with fingers then add a dash of cayenne.
  • Spray the grill with non-stick cooking spray. Place the acorn squash segments on the grill. Grill with lid closed for 20 minutes. Flipping at the 10 minute mark.
  • Remove the acorn squash once tender. Drizzle with honey and serve immediately.


  • Slice - Slicing the acorn squash can be challenging. It's just as hard as cutting through butternut squash or even spaghetti squash. If I know I'm going to cook with my acorn squash quickly I'll ask the produce department at my grocery store to at least cut it in half for me!
  • Season - Acorn squash grilled is best with seasoning. Don't slack with the seasoning as the bbq acorn squash by it's self tends to not yield as much flavor.
  • Grill - I have always cooked acorn squash on gas grill, but you can also cook it on a charcoal grill too. The time might vary as for how long it will take you to grill.
  • Vegan - Make this vegan by substituting the honey for a plant based sweetner like agave nectar, maple syrup, or Bee Free Honee.
