Stuffed Acorn Squash

By Forks over Knives  

READY IN: 35 MINUTES • SERVES 6

 

This acorn squash recipe is no fuss, no oil, and 100 percent delicious. This makes enough filling for about 6 acorn squash halves (3 whole squash) but is tasty enough to eat on its own. So if you don’t want to make that much squash, eat the leftover filling by itself for another meal.

INGREDIENTS FOR THE SQUASH:

• 3 acorn squash (see note)

FOR THE FILLING:

• cup quinoa

• cup diced onion

• 1 cups diced mushrooms

• 1 cup diced celery

• cup finely chopped cabbage

• teaspoon sea salt

• freshly ground black pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat the oven to 375F. Halve the squash laterally through the center (rather than through the stem), and scoop out the seeds.

2. Place the squash in an 88-inch baking dish with the cut side down, and fill the baking dish with inch of water.

3. Loosely cover with foil and bake until the squash and edible skin are totally soft, about 35 minutes. Set aside.

4. Combine the quinoa and 1 cup of water in a small pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and let cool; then fluff the quinoa with a fork.

5. Preheat a large skillet over medium heat for about 1 minute. Add the onions and sauté for about 7 minutes, stirring often, or until the onions turn nice and brown, which brings out the sweetness and gives the dish a nice deep flavor. Add water 1 to 2 tablespoons at a time, to keep the onions from sticking to the pan.

6. Add the mushrooms, celery, cabbage, salt, and pepper to taste, and cook for 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally.

7. Add the vegetable mixture to the quinoa and stir together.

8. Fill each of the cooked squash halves with the quinoa mixture, packing them firmly to fit as much of the mixture into each half as possible.
