Savory Holiday Stuffed Squash

By Peta


  • 2 oz. vegan margarine or vegan butter, plus extra for brushing the squash
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup, plus extra for brushing the squash
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • Pinch grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 1-pound acorn squashes cut in half lengthwise and seeded
  • 2 vegan sausages, sliced
  • 1 green apple, peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  2. Melt the vegan margarine in a small saucepan over low heat or in the microwave, and stir in the maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Spoon into the seeded squash halves and bake for about 40 minutes, or until you can pierce the skin with a fork.
  3. Pour the margarine mixture from the center into a medium bowl. Scoop out some of the cooked squash flesh with a spoon, making sure to leave enough at the bottom so that the squashes hold their shape, and add to the bowl. Add the vegan sausages, apples and walnuts, and mix until well combined. Fill each squash half with the mixture, then brush with vegan margarine and maple syrup. Cover with foil and bake for another 35-40 minutes.
  4.  Makes 4 servings
