Vegan Stuffed Acorn Squash With Pumpkin Seeds

I adore this vegan stuffed acorn squash recipe for the Holiday season and year round too. The fall and winter flavors are mouthwatering. I encourage everyone to try this plant based dish for family dinner and Holiday meals. 

Stuffed acorn squash is really quit delicious with lovely flavors. Acorn squash is a winter squash packed with vitamins and minerals. It’s rich in protein, potassium, and fiber. Also vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, and iron. 

Vegan stuffed squash is super simple to make all you need is a few common ingredients. The exact ingredients you will need include 2 medium acorn squashes, 2 cups croutons (plain), and 4 tbsp vegetable oil. Also 1 cup vegetable broth, 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds, and 1/2 tbsp salt.

I love cooking vegan dishes with pumpkin seeds which are also called North American pepitas. They are packed with protein, fiber are other nutrients. For example they are rich in niacin, iron, and magnesium. Also manganese and phosphorus! They add a lovely little crunch to this vegan stuffed squash.

Other ingredients for stuffed acorn squash include 1/2 tbsp nutmeg, 1 tbsp brown sugar, 1/2 tbsp onion powder, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1 tsp black pepper. These flavors and seasonings are amazing with this vegan dish

Prep the acorn squash by cutting them in half and removing the guts and seeds. Then preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Combine the dry ingredients or seasonings in a small mixing bowl and whisk them together. 

Fill the acorn squash with the croutons, oil, vegetable broth, seasonings, and seeds. Then arrange them properly on a baking sheet or pan and place them on the oven rack. Bake them for an hour then allow them to rest for 20 or 30 minutes! Check out the full and detailed recipe below.
