Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash

Tonight’s dinner inspiration was loosely based on a quinoa-pumpkin stuffing recipe I’d seen on Evan’s blog. I love quinoa. I love pumpkin and winter squash, and I love stuffing. So I tweaked it a little, and ended up with a quinoa-stuffed acorn squash. It was almost like the stuffing but deconstructed.

Saute onion while quinoa simmers.


Roast acorn squash.


Season stuffing with herbs de provence (one of my favorite herb-combinations), and spoon into one half of the squash.


Served alongside some broiled salmon. It looks plain, but really the spices were on the bottom. That was the skin side and I forget to flip it after peeling off the skin.

Have you tried acorn squash before?

Who’s ready for Glee tonight? šŸ˜‰

    I loved stuffed vegetables too. They are healthy and when they’re stuffed with quinoa they are pretty filling too.
    Great recipe by the way and the pictures are nice too.
    I’ll definitely give it a go.

    That sounds fantastic. I love squash- and quinoa and put them together… YUM. Oh and salmon… Mmmmm..

  8. I *love* acorn squash!

    Last year, I had a bad experience, because apparently the squash I purchased wasn’t ready to be picked and hadn’t reached that lovely state of sweetness. This past week, my opinion on acorn squash changed forever. SO delicious and sweet. šŸ˜€

    I love the idea of stuffing it with quinoa! Definitely trying this. šŸ˜€

  9. Im planning to stuff some acorn squash full of quinoa this weekend. Great minds thing alike!

  10. Yum! I’m a huge acorn squash fan, but have not tried stuffing it yet.
