Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash

On my recent trip home I was tasked with making a vegetarian dinner for some family friends. After having stuffed acorn squash at my friend Marisol's house I knew I had to recreate it! This is a delicious, filling, and healthy meal. Be creative with your ingredients and enjoy!


Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash (Serves 6)
Time: 1hr

Ingredients:
- 3 Acorn Squash
- 1c Quinoa
- 1c Feta Cheese

- 1/2c Parsley, Minced
- 1 Small Sweet Onion, Minced
- 2 Garlic Cloves, Minced
- 2c Chicken Broth (or salted water)
- 1tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and roast your squash cut side down on a baking sheet for 20-25mins, or until tender.
  2. Make quinoa as directed with chicken broth, I use a little less than 2c of liquid per 1c of quinoa.
  3. In a medium heated pan, sautee onion and garlic with olive oil. Add sauteed vegetables to quinoa and mix together.
  4. Lastly, add minced parsley, pistachios, feta cheese, and red wine vinegar to the quinoa mixture. Scoop mixture into squash and enjoy!
