Squashes are the ultimate comfort foods for the winters.Acorn Squash is mildly sweet like butternut but warmer in taste and it tastes amazing with warming spices like nutmeg, chili powder, cajun etc.In this recipe I combine Roasted acorn squash with the saltiness of the feta and spice from cajun for a yummy winter soup.
