Stuffed Squash Variation

Thought I'd try to mix some flavors up a bit. This variation is fantastic. Again I'm using Morning Star Meal Starters Crumbles, feel free to substitute in any lean protein of your choice.

To speed up the cooking time slice the acorn squash in half, spoon out the seeds and pulp, place in a baking dish, spray with olive oil, sprinkle with cinnamin, and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. (This was a little faster than gutting it like a pumpkin.)

Brown the Meal Starters (or whatever other lean protein you desire) in olive oil in a frying pan. Sprinkle sweet yellow curry on top and mix in. This should be done to taste, but I covered the surface with sweet curry. Once browned sprinkle about 1/4 cup of dry unsweetened coconut, 1/4 cup chopped dried cranberries, and 3/4 cup of almonds. Once mixed in, place contents inside each half of the baking acorn squash. Bake for 8-10 more minutes.

Great to eat right away or as a snack the next day.
