Stuffed Acorn Squash


So lately I have been totally into squash- tis the fall season! Spaghetti squash and acorn squash are my favorite right now!

Tonight I made my favorite dish thus far: Turkey and Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash.

It is super easy and delicious and is my new fall go to dish!


1 Acorn Squash

1 lb ground turkey

1 c quinoa

1 cup shredded kale

1 tbsp olive oil

1 clove garlic

hard goat cheese (I used drunken goat)

pesto if desired!

Start with an acorn squash, cut in half, and baked on 400 F.

While baking the squash, prep quinoa according to directions- I love the frozen kind from Trader Joe’s because it easy and cheaper! Also cook ground turkey with  olive oil and some garlic. Add in kale, and then quinoa to mix it all together. I added in a dollop of pesto made with walnuts for an extra boost of flavor!

Once the squash is cooked, stuff the quinoa/turkey mixture into it, and top with goat cheese! Broil for 10 minutes, cool at enjoy!

This makes two servings plus there is extra turkey/quinoa mixture that I plan on stuffing into another squash as well as maybe peppers!

This is also a great fall meal to impress guests! I want to try getting mini pumpkins and stuffing them next! Enjoy!


Peace, Love, and be Sperry!
