  3. * Cooking acorn squash doesn’t have to take an hour, although roasting it is one of my favorites. Simply cut the squash in half and scoop out the seeds, then slice into wedges according to the outside of the squash. Remove the peel with a vegetable peeler and then chop into 1″ cubes. Place cubes along with about 1 tablespoon of water in a microwave safe bowl, cover (with either a lid or plastic wrap) and microwave 6 minutes.
