Stuffed Acorn Squash

Acorn SquashOne of my favorite squash recipes I've found! It can be done with or without the steamed spinach - sometimes I prefer to pair just the squash with a spinach/strawberry/orange salad.

Ingredients

  • 1 acorn squash
  • 3 cups chopped organic celery
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons chopped red pepper
  • 2 cups applesauce or apple butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable seasoning
  • 2x 6-7 ounce bags organic baby spinach

Instructions
Halve squash and place cut side down in baking dish with 1/8 inch water in bottom of pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Stir fry celery, onion and peppers until tender with a little water in a pan. Stir in the applesauce, curry, cinnamon and vegetable seasoning. Steam spinach until wilted. When squash is done, turn over and stuff with applesauce/veggie mix. Let bake for 5 more minutes in the oven. Serve each half on bed of steamed spinach.
