Ingredients
  • 2 acorn squash, cut in 1/2 and seeded
  • 1/3 cup lowfat sour cream or more as needed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup shelled dry-roasted sunflower seeds
Directions

Place the acorn squash halves in a microwave-safe dish and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on HIGH until the flesh is tender, 5 to 7 minutes.

Using a spoon or ice cream scoop, remove the flesh from the squash and transfer to a large bowl. Add the sour cream, cumin, and garlic powder and mash together with a fork until blended and smooth, adding more sour cream, as necessary, to create a nice consistency. Season with salt and pepper.

Spoon the squash onto plates and top with sunflower seeds just before serving.
