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.
