Vegan Quinoa-Stuffed Acorn Squash


  • Olive oil: 2 tablespoons.
  • Apple: 1.
  • Garlic cloves: 3.
  • Acorn squash: 3.
  • Cranberries: 1/2 cup.
  • Sage: 1 teaspoon.
  • Himalayan salt: 1 teaspoon.
  • Cinnamon: 1/2 tsp.
  • Pure maple syrup: 2 tbsp.
  • Celery: 1.
  • Vegetable broth: 1/2 cup.
  • Thyme: 1 tsp.


  1. Heat the cooking area to 430 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. To enable the squash to stand up, cut a tiny slice (don’t cut too much or it could create a hole) from the bottom of each squash.
  3. If the stems are sticking out, cut them off.
  4. Now, cut each squash in half lengthwise.
  5. Remove the squash’s seeds and membranes, then throw it away
  6. Squash should be placed cut-side up on a rimmed baking sheet.
  7. Brush the heavy cover of olive oil and then put the salt on it.
  8. Roast the squash for thirty to forty-five minutes, so that a fork inserted into it pierces it easily.
  9. The quinoa and broth should be added to a wide pot.
  10. Cover and cook the quinoa until the liquid has disappeared and it becomes foamy.
  11. The cooking time for this is normally 15 to 20 minutes.
  12. Put aside.
  13. Heat two tablespoons of oil in a big pan over medium heat. Apples, celery, and onion should be sautéed til tender. Five to six minutes, around.
  14. Add the cranberries, garlic, wise man, thyme, cinnamon, sodium chloride, and pepper along with the mushrooms.
  15. Sauté the mushrooms and cranberries for 7 to 9 minutes, or while they are soft.
  16. Mix thoroughly, then taste for flavor and add more if necessary.
  17. Once the squash is cooked, pack it full with the stuffing mixture.


Because this recipe is so flexible, feel free to substitute your preferred ingredients. Use vegan sausage in this recipe. After the onions, celery, and apples have cooked, break up one sausage link and use it instead of half of the mushrooms called for in the recipe. Brown them after adding a little extra oil. Field Roast with Smoked Apple Sage taste is what I suggest.
