Sassy Squash Recipes

I hope you’re enjoying the change of seasons!

My husband brought home several butternut squash he grew from from his community garden. He set them on the counter thinking I would know exactly what to do with them all!

After some research and experimenting, I have three delicious recipes I would like to share with you. 

1. Butternut Squash Quinoa Boats with Cranberries and Pumpkin Seeds:

Ingredients and instructions for 2 servings:

1 Medium butternut squash cut lengthwise

Scoop out the seeds

Coat the sides of the squash with olive oil and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Put 1 tsp Maple syrup where the seeds use to be. 

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes

Use a rice cooker for the quinoa:

1 rice cooker cup of quinoa and 2 1/2 rice cooker cups water (water measurement may vary depending on rice cooker).

Add a handful of pumpkin seeds and cranberries. 

When quinoa is done, add it to the squash and serve!
