Roasted Stuffed Acorn Squash
I didn't really discover the versatility and deliciousness of squash until recently. I am not a fan a cooked zucchini or yellow squash, but butternut, acorn and spaghetti squash are my new faves. I like keeping it simple and started off by roasting the squash in it's skin at a high temp in the oven. I lightly spray with olive oil and season with salt and pepper before baking. Once squash are soft to the touch I know they are ready. It's cool to see the caramelization around the edges which just makes the squash even more flavorful and sweeter. This recipe uses the squash as a base for a quinoa salad. This is a healthy meal that is super filling and nutritious. Quinoa has lots of fiber and protein making it a great substitute for animal protein. You could try this using butternut squash instead of acorn, but acorn are just so cute!

I never tried quinoa and I love it! It tasted like nothing but the apples put so much flavor in it. I love how quinoa looks, it look like little eggs. The squash was really soft and chewy, it was delicious!

This dish looked very interesting when I saw it. I never really thought that green apples and quinoa would actually taste good together, until I tried it. I really enjoyed making the quinoa.

At first glance the dish looked very interesting. When I took the first bite it tasted very interesting, it had quite a good flavor. Although it was not my favorite dish it was an amazing experience to make, cutting the acorn squash was difficult at first but my kitchen and I then figured it out. Something I learned how to do cut an acorn squash.

This dish was amazing! I loved the acorn squash so much. I learned that cutting one is not very easy at all. I like it but i preferred no quinoa but besides it was delicious. My team didn't feel the same though, they mostly liked the quinoa but i can't blame them, it was good.

When making this amazingly healthy and delicious dish I learned how to cook and caramelize an a or squash. My kitchen and I had a lot of fun making jokes and cooking together. The dist had many different flavors that made it different and unique. I had so much fun cooking and eating with my group and making this dish.

The acorn squash looked, in my opinion, not very appetizing. The squash itself was too squishy, but the quinoa, apples, and cheese were very tasty together. I enjoyed making the quinoa and cutting all of the fruits. I learned how to cut an acorn squash, which was really hard, without hurting myself.

It looked interesting when I looked at it.This was healthy but I didn't like the taste of just the acorn squash.So the fruits helped it make it better. The squash was hard to cut through. Our kitchen kind of liked it.

I personally did not favor acorn squash. I did not really enjoy it because we did not put the balsamic glaze on top and I think it would have really made it really good. I was very pleased with the presentation but not the taste. I would love to remake this recipe with the glaze.

This dish was amazing. I loved the sweetness of the squash and the saltiness of the quinoa. It was a lot of fun making the quinoa with my kitchen and I learned how to take out seeds from squash.

The quinoa was very good and I loved the dried fruit in it. I did not like the acorn squash so I just ate the quinoa. I enjoyed making this dish though.

The taste of the acorn squash was okay for me but was kind of plain. My experience was fun because my kitchen worked really hard to prepare the squash. A new skill I learned was how to make quinoa.
10/22/2018 08:58:36 am
The taste of the squash was not my favorite. The experience of making the squash was different than making anything else before. A new skill I learned was how to make quinoa.

Making the acorn squash was really fun. I got to cut the squash which was kind of difficult. When we put olive oil on the squash it looked so pretty. The acorn dish wasn't my favorite and it didn't really have flavor. The dish looked so beautiful but bland.
10/22/2018 09:00:15 am
This dish looked interesting. It looked healthy, but it wasn't my favorite. But my kitchen and I had a great time making it.
10/22/2018 09:00:39 am
The taste was really good and the mixture with the quinoa,cheese,fruit slices,and arugula was really good.When I first saw this I said I wanted to eat it right there and then.It was really fun making it but it was fun with all of them but this recipe was even better because mostly everyone had never tried the squash and quinoa.

I didn’t eat it but it looked really good

I can't exactly say how I feel about the squash because I didn't eat any of it. Tho making it was pretty fun to do, especially cutting the apples.
10/22/2018 11:46:55 am
I learned the hard way that it's not easy cutting an acorn squash was very difficult. The taste of the apples ,dried fruit, quinoa ,and squash was a interesting combo.

I really enjoyed making this dish, it looked very interesting. I never would have thought to make it. A new experience was scooping out the seeds because I have never done this with a pumpkin but with a acorn. We had amazing team work and didn't have any problems.

I've had quinoa before but never had quinoa with apples.I really enjoyed making the quinoa and now I can make it myself at home.
10/22/2018 11:48:04 am
I did not taste the dish but my friends say it was very good. I did have an amazing time making it with my kitchen. I really love taking all the seeds out of the squash. Over all it was a really fun expeirience.

In my opinion, the stuffed acorn squash wasn't the best. It wasn't my favorite because I didn't like the combination of the sweetness of the squash and the saltiness of the filling. My team and I thought it was very fun to make.
10/22/2018 11:50:53 am
I ate the Roasted Stuffed Acorn Squash. I really enjoyed it, but we picked up a squash that a team didn't scoop out. So, the consistency was weird and slimy it was very stringy. But other than that I enjoyed it very much. I especially loved the Glaze and, cheese on top. And it filled me up super fast.
10/22/2018 11:51:32 am
This was the first time making acorn squash. The experience of making it wasn't that hard, but it was fun making it. I didn't eat it, but my kitchen mates said it tasted great.
10/22/2018 11:51:43 am
I didn't really like the squash. But the quinoa was very delicious with the apples and dried fruit. It definitely wasn't my favorite dish.

My kitchen did not make this dish but we did help Mrs. Rauly make a couple for Cafe Lu. The experience of cutting this acorn squash was very hard and i did end up cutting my finger just a tiny bit but I was ok. Overall, helping make this was very fun to do.
10/22/2018 11:52:04 am
The acorn squash looked interesting. I enjoyed the quinoa and apples but the squash was not my favorite. My kitchen had fun making the dish but we did have a hard time cutting the squash.
10/22/2018 11:52:34 am
When I fist looked at the dish I was a little reluctant on trying it because it was not the best looking dish in the world. But once I tried it my perspective changed on the dish. I loved that the apple chunks were in the quinoa, but the quinoa itself did not have much flavor. I was not much of a big fan of the squash itself, but I still ate it because it was edible and I did not want to waste food.
10/22/2018 11:55:35 am
loved the Stuffed Acorn Squash. Their was one problem with it the team that we got our squash from didn't scoop out the guts. So, the consistency was very slimy and stringy I didn't like that. But other than that I loved it

I am very sorry to say this but I did not like the acorn squash. I did like being in the kitchen to make it, but the taste is something I can't describe. I personally think that my kitchen did something wrong to make it taste so odd.
10/22/2018 11:57:37 am
I think this dish was pretty unique, because I have never had this dish before. The squash was squishy and tender. The quinoa and the apples complimented each other making them very savory together. The way we plated this dish made it look very tasty. This was not my favorite dish but, the flavors were interesting.

I love this recipe, I was the only person in my kitchen who wanted it but they helped me make it. It was super easy to make and super delicious. I even brought some home to my mother and she loved it. I will definitely try this again and experiment with different spices and seasonings.

I don’t really like squash so I didn’t try the squash part of the dish but I did try to quinoa. The squash was easy to prepare and so was the quinoa. I didn’t like the dried fruits in the quinoa just because I don’t like dried fruit. The apples were very good in it though.
10/25/2018 02:45:20 pm
Im not going to say I would make this again I tried it and honestly didnt like it. Im not going to say that you shouldn't try it but I just didnt like it.
10/30/2018 08:37:35 am
This dish was definitely something new for me. I had never tried acorn squash before and I´m glad I got the chance to because I really liked it. Although I didn't get to help out making this because I was helping with Cafe´ Lu I did get the chance to make quinoa.
11/8/2018 07:31:25 pm
When making this meal it was a blast. I would give my mom the recipe so that we can make it for dinner one night.
11/13/2018 07:50:17 pm
I did not really cared for it but I loved the apple part it was my favorite part but the squash was not the best but I still finished it because after awhile it was really good .My kitchen did all the dishes while me and Abree cooked.I would love to make this for my family.
11/20/2018 07:03:28 pm
The acorn squash wasn't my favorite. The quinoa was not very good in my squash. But it did have some good flavors to it as well.
11/24/2018 07:39:48 pm
I didn't like the squash but the filling was great. But I got to see the smallest pasta ever. I was a great experience with the tiny pasta and my kitchen.

I cannot comment on the acorn squash because I did not eat it

I think the acorn squash looked like a very savory dish but I did not participate in eating this dish. Although I did prepare it and the most fun part about doing this was garnishing the dish and cutting it because it was so hard it gave me a whole new technique on cutting very dense items.

I do not like squash I don't know why but I still tried the squash. I had never cooked squash before. Since I do not like squash I did not like the food but if I did like squash I think I would have loved it.

It looked really pretty at first glance but I did not personally enjoy the flavor of the dish to me I felt like it needed a boost of flavor but I enjoyed the process of making this dish

When making the acorn squash I thought it would taste really good and make again. But when I tried it it was not my favorite because the balsamic vinegar was a little to strong for me. I also think we added to much peper.
