Stuffed Acorn Squash

This recipe turned out really yummy. Dustin and I were both pleased. The kids wouldn't touch it so I made them pasta with parmesan and the squash separate. I kinda just made up my own recipe from a few others on allrecipes.com. Actually, the quinoa part is very much like my other quinoa recipe I have posted. Enjoy!

2 acorn squash
quinoa
zucchini
garbanzo beans
apple
yellow onion
(optional ingredients that I didn't have: garlic, raisins)
garam marsala seasoning or curry seasoning

Cut squash in half and trim a small amount off the bottoms too so they will sit upright in the baking dish. (Optional: sprinkle squash with brown sugar or syrup). Bake in a baking dish, cut side up with a small amount of water in the pan and covered with foil. They take about 45 minutes to cook. While the squash is cooking cook how ever much quinoa you would like, according to the package directions, with vegetable or chicken broth (I used 1 cup quinoa to 2 cups water). In another pan saute onion, apple, and zucchini until onions are translucent. When quinoa is done mix in veggies and garbanzo beans. Add curry powder or garam marsala. Remove squash from oven and fill with quinoa. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
