What You’ll Need


Makes 8 servings

Active Time: 25 minutes 

Total Time: 45 minutes 

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line 2 sheet trays with parchment or foil. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, melt 1 cup (2 sticks) butter. Continue to cook until browned and nutty, swirling occasionally, 5 to 7 minutes. Whisk in all of the maple syrup, 1 teaspoon salt, and set aside.

Step 2

Meanwhile, cut the winter squashes in half and scoop out the seeds. Remove any scarring or bumps on the skins, but you don’t have to peel them. Cut the squashes into wedges about ¾-inch thick. Peel and quarter or halve the cipollini onions. Roughly chop the pecans.

Step 3

Pile the squashes and onions on the prepared pans, drizzle with about two-thirds of the maple brown butter, season with a 2 teaspoons salt, and toss to coat. Scatter a few sprigs of thyme over each pan. Transfer the pans to the oven and roast until the squashes and onions are nearly tender, about 15 minutes.

Step 4

Add the pecans to the pan, drizzle with the remaining glaze, and turn to coat. Return the pan to the oven and roast until the squash is completely tender and golden from the caramelized maple and the nuts are toasted, 20 minutes longer.

Step 5

When the squash is ready, pile it on a serving platter or bowl. Sprinkle with the pomegranate seeds and serve warm.  

Contains: milk, tree nuts.

Note: Due to seasonal availability, you may receive kabocha, blue Hokkaido, buttercup, or another variety of winter squash.
