Gochujang Winter Squash Sliders

It is one of those days when I found a post in the drafts.  These sliders are super easy and fun to put together. I used Acorn squash. Use any squash of choice. Gochujang adds a deep spicy profile for the shredded squash. Watch the heat! 

Paired with shredded cabbage or lettuce and horseradish dressing. Make them in sliders, or fill up tacos or wraps!

Its so hot in Seattle today, that I just want to sleep on the floor. Sleep writing through this post. 

In other awesome news, the book is going for second printing! as the publisher ran out of the first print stock and its just 2 weeks since release! Get your copy today, and please do leave a review if you cooked some from it!! Happy Friday!
