Acorn squash is a good source of fiber, potassium, magnesium, manganese, and vitamins C and B. I peeled and diced squash rather than using whole and stuffing. Can use brown rice instead of quinoa.

Recipe Ingredients for Stuffed Acorn Squash

700 grams acorn squash
1 cup red onions, dices
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup dried cranberries, sugar free
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp cloves
1 tablespoon Original Natural Buttery Spread
1 cup quinoa
2 cups water

Recipe Directions for Stuffed Acorn Squash

  1. Cleaning the squash. Cut in half along its length (top to bottom) and scoop out the seeds (save the seeds for roasting, if desired).

  2. Boil water in a covered cooking pot on the stove top; add the seasonings, earth balance and quinoa; cover and reduce temperature to a simmer.

  3. Add remaining ingredients and simmer until all water is absorbed into the rice.

  4. Remove from heat and mix thoroughly; replace cover and let stand for about 10 minutes.

  5. Stuff the squash halves with the quinoa mixture; bake in a covered roasting pan at 350 for about 1 hours, or until the squash is tender.
