Stop everything and try stuffed butternut squash

We have a tendency to be (a bit) dramatic. Trust us, this stuffed butternut squash from PumpUp member @K_gimme is worth it, and it’s ‘gourd’-geous.

She roasted 1 medium butternut squash and stuffed it with quinoa, kale, zucchini, pine nuts, peppers, turnips, and a few other vegetables (get creative: carrots, celery, sauteed onions, etc. The possibilities are endless)

  • Preheat oven to 400F. Cut squash in half. Bake for 45 minutes. 
  • Meanwhile, prepare quinoa according to package directions and sauté desired veggies.
  • Scoop out cooked squash to create a deeper ‘bowl’ and place the mixed veggies inside
  • Top with cheese or any other desired toppings and bake for another 15 minutes at 350 degrees
