2 Tbs honey (or a little more to taste)
1 tsp sea salt (or a little more to taste)

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut squash in half and place cut side down in a large baking dish with about an inch of water in it. Bake about 30-40 minutes, depending on size, until a fork goes into skin easily when pierced). Let cool.
When cool enough to handle, scoop out roasted pulp with a spoon, discarding the skin, and place in a large, greased casserole dish. Mash. Stir in melted Earth Balance, 1/4 cup chopped pecans, honey, salt, and nutmeg. Taste and add any additional seasonings, if necessary. Sprinkle top with additional 1/4 cup of chopped pecans and dot with 1 Tbs additional Earth Balance. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-30 minutes.
