Hey loves! Recipe #3 for vegan holiday meal ideas is a bit different from traditional turkey with all the trimmings. If you’re looking to switch things up this season here’s a vegan twist on squash that is sure to be a hit at your table.
I was at the grocery store a few days ago with my 3-year-old who LOVES to throw items into the cart (what kid doesn’t?..lol.). He picked up an acorn squash and put it in our cart. I figured I’d just put it back when he wasn’t looking or give it back to the cashier if I forgot.
Welp….I forgot all together. We discovered our beloved new acorn squash at home as my husband unpacked everything. One of my biggest money-saving tips for buying produce is to not buy anything you don’t have a plan to make within 3 days. I was in the mood for tacos but had no shells ( just my luck..lol). So I decided I’d take the same ingredients for my tacos (give or take a few subs) and use them for a twist on vegan stuffed acorn squash. The recipe is vegan super easy, quick, delicious and nutritious. It’s also a nice change from the traditional meal options typically served during the holiday season. Now you can always opt to serve this as a quinoa bowl instead but you’d be missing out on all of the amazing nutritional benefits of acorn squash..and what fun is that?
Acorn squash is naturally gluten-free, packed with antioxidants & high in vitamins C, A and fiber. It’s also considered low on the glycemic index scale even though it’s a starch.Check out the recipe below! Let me know if you try this or any of my other recipes in the comments.
