Acorn Squash with Curried Apples

What you need: 

2 small acorn squash, cut in 1/2 and deseeded
1/2 teaspoon + 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
2 teaspoons vegan margarine, divided
2 baking apples, diced into small pieces
1/4 cup onion, minced
1/2" piece ginger, grated
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon curry powder

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the acorn squash into a baking dish. Pour a little water in the bottom of the dish, enough to cover the bottom. With 1/2 teaspoon salt, lightly salt the cut acorn squash. Place 1/2 teaspoon margarine into each squash 1/2.
2. Combine the apples, onion, and ginger. Add enough curry powder to just coat the apple mixture. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt to the mix.
3. Spoon the apple mixture into the acorn squash. Don't be afraid to over-stuff the squash because the apples will cook down a lot while baking.
4. Cover the squash with aluminum foil and bake for about 45 minutes. Baking time will depend on the size of the squash. The easiest way to check if it's cooked, is to pierce the squash through the skin with a fork. If the fork pierces through easily, it is done.
I served this along with wild rice and faux sausage.

I just made this recipe.  I added extra curry, and used butter instead of v-marg and it needed an hour to cook through.  I wish I would have had pecans to add as they would have went beautifully.  I never ate acorn squash before and really enjoyed this first exposure. :)  Once cooked, they could actually sit for 10 minutes before serving as they really keep their heat. 


I found that I absolutely love the mix of the curry, apples, ginger and salt!! However It may just be that I am new to acorn squash but I really didn't like the flavor of the squash. If anyone wants to try it, make sure you fully cook the squash before trying it!


This turned out perfectly. Super easy, relatively quick and just wonderful.  ;)b Thank you!
