Serves: 2 person(s)
Baked acorn squash halves stuffed with sautéed broccoli, cheese and walnuts.

Ingredients
  • 1 acorn squash
  • 1/2 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup broccoli florets, chopped
  • 8 oz mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons walnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, grated

Directions: Heat oven to 400°F. Cut squash in half and remove the seeds. Rub the cut flesh with salt and place flesh side down in a baking dish and bake for about 35 minutes. While the squash is baking, sauté onion in butter until clear and add chopped broccoli florets, mushrooms and celery. Sauté about 4 minutes. Stir in walnuts and fresh basil, then sprinkle with brown sugar and soy sauce, adjust seasoning to taste. Toss to mix well. Check baking squash with a fork to see if it glides through the flesh. Stuff with vegetable mixture, top with equal amounts of grated cheese and return to oven for about 5 minutes.
