Stuffed Acorn Squash
1 acorn squash halved and deseeded
½ cup uncooked rice
Replacement for 1lb beef (I used TJ’s beefless ground beef)
½ Med. Onion diced fine
2 cloves garlic minced
2oz of Vegan Cheese (I prefer Daiya)
Salt & Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350
Salt and pepper acorn halves and spritz with olive oil (I didn’t have a spritzer, so I poured a little olive oil into the acorn squash and spread it around). Put cut-side down in a microwave safe dish, cover with plastic wrap and microwave 10-15 minutes or until you can pierce it with a fork.
Meanwhile, cook rice according to directions.
Sauté onions, garlic and beef substitute until onions are translucent and beef is browned.
When rice is done, mix with beef mixture. Pack into acorn halves and cover with cheese. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and slightly brown.
