Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash
I love fall and all the great harvest it brings! Squash soups, pumpkin breads and all the warm delicious meals! I made this really easy baked Squash for dinner and can appease vegetarians as well!
The sweet brown sugar melted into the squash as it bakes offsets the savory quinoa veggie mix you’ll stuff it with. There are a million things you could alter in this,so get creative!
1/2 cup of quinoa
1 red pepper
1 acorn squash halved
1 tbsp of organic brown sugar
1 tbsp of butter
Halve the squash and place in a pan at 400 degrees for one hour. I put a little bit of water in the pan so it doesn’t burn the outsides of the squash. About 1 inch of water is fine. Scoop out the insides and place a little bit of butter and brown sugar in each half.
Meanwhile cook 1/2 cup of qunoia as you normally would. I then sauteed some sweeter veggies to mix in. I chose a sweet red bell pepper, diced. And a few carrots shaved. Both are more savory than the squash, but still a tad sweet. After soft, mix in with quinoa.
Spoon mixture into the Acorn squash halves and serve!
