Garlic Veggie and Quinoa-Stuffed Acorn Squash

By Erin Trauth

Yield: 2 servings

-1 medium acorn squash
-2 servings quinoa
-Garlic to taste
-Your choice of mixed vegetables — here’s my mix:
-1 onion
-1 yellow squash
-2 tomatoes
-1 cucumber
-1/2 head kale

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

Cut a line through the squash — you probably won’t be able to cut it all the way in half, but get a cut started.

Bake the squash for 20 minutes. While it’s baking, dice all vegetables and add garlic and pepper to taste. Start cooking quinoa in a separate pot.

When the 20 minutes are up, remove the squash from the oven. Wait about 5 minutes (it’s hot!), and then cut it in half, using your line as a guide.

Scoop out seeds from squash.

Add in mix of quinoa and vegetables.

Place squash face-up back into cooking pan.

Top with 1 tablespoon olive oil and any other garnish you prefer.

Bake at 400 for another 25 minutes.
