Baked Apple Stuffed Acorn Squash Recipe

Posted in Uncategorized at 12:40 pm by DivineShantiYoga

So, this is a fabulously easy way to enjoy winter squash and I’m quite happy to say that even my hubby enjoyed it, and he usually snubs his nose to any kind of squash. Score! 🙂 I’m going to try this again today, adding sliced oranges, cranberries and chopped pecans with the apple (and maybe a little more maple syrup too)

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium sized acorn squash
  • 2 Granny Smith Apples, peeled, cored & diced
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. ground clove
  • dash of sea salt
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. sweetener of choice (maple syrup, brown sugar, honey, agave, etc.)
  • 2 Tbsp. melted oil or butter (I love coconut oil here)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut squash in half, spoon out seeds. Place cut-side down in baking dish with 1/2 inch water and bake for 40 minutes. Meanwhile; mix spices, sweetener & oil and toss with prepared diced apple. When squash is done, remove from oven and flip over so the cut-side is up. Stuff squash with apple mixture and bake again for another 15 minutes. Yum!

    Made this and added pecans, craisons, and raisons and maple syrup.  Delicious – thanks.  You can do this with butternut squash also. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.      Melva “The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.”  Pablo Picasso
