Flaxseed Dressing

Serves: 8
Total Calories: 33
Yield: 2 cups


1/4 acorn squash seeds removed
3/4 cup unsweetened apple juice
1/2 cup coarsely chopped celery
2 tablespoons pecans toasted
2 tablespoons whole flaxseeds


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Put the squash cut-side down on the lined baking sheet and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until soft. Let cool to room temperature. Scoop out the flesh and transfer to a blender. Add the apple juice, celery, pecans, and flaxseeds and process on high speed until smooth. Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, Flaxseed Dressing will keep for 12 hours (see note).

Note: This dressing keeps for a very short time in the refrigerator because the flaxseeds start to ferment once they are ground. To make the dressing in advance, put all the ingredients except the flaxseeds in a blender and process on high speed until smooth, then refrigerate. Just before serving, return the dressing to the blender, add the flaxseeds, and process on high speed until smooth.
