Quinoa Stuffed Squash

I saw this squash at the grocery store and just had to try it. It is such a pretty looking squash I figured it would look nice stuffed. The squash was not marked at the store so it took a Google search and researching to find out what it was. It is a Winter Acorn developed by Rupp seed company called Celebration. I decided to stuff it with quinoa and it worked out very nicely.

Quinoa Stuffed Squash


1 tablespoon tablespoon butter
1 cup uncooked quinoa
2 cups water or vegetable broth
2 teaspoon chopped garlic
2 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 dash fresh lemon juice (optional)

Bring the water or broth to boil over high heat. Reduce the temperture to medium hign and cook for 12 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed. Remove from the heat and let set.

Saute the garlic and onion in the butter. Add the spices. Combine with the cooked quinoa. Fluff witha fork.. Add salt to taste and the lemon juice, if desired.

Serve as a side dish instead of rice or potatoes. A nice way to serve is stuffed in a baked squash.
