After all that running what would be better than red wine and cooking?? hmm? I know...Not much.
|This was a very "Autumn" recipe... in February. It's all good.|
I love cooking with squash! You may have noticed that I've already posted two recipes with spaghetti squash, one being the Crazy Sesame Noodles. Butternut squash is another favorite of mine, but I had never tried acorn squash before, so I decided to buy a couple little guys. One thing I love about squash is that it will doesn't go bad within a week like most produce. This gave me some time to think about what on earth to do with the acorn squash.
Check out the Quinoa-Stuffed Acorn Squash recipe I came across on All Recipes.
My friend Lindsay and her cousin, Madelyn, came over for dinner. I didn't know Madelyne was a vegetarian, but obviously that worked out nicely for me! We enjoyed the wine Lindsay brought over and chatted about life, relationships, and you know... other girl things. As I was cooking, Madelyn had lots of questions about going vegan. I was happy to answer them! :)

Sweet and Spicy Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash
from AllRecipes.com (modified to be made vegan and slightly healthier)
This recipe will easily serve 4!
* I only used 1 jalapeno pepper and it was pretty mild. Next time I will probably add another jalapeno pepper.
Have you ever wondered why I am cooking with coconut oil as opposed to other cooking oils? Read for yourself in this article!
Madelyn said she is going to start cooking more vegan food and that's just fabulous! A great source for vegan recipes is VegWeb. I post all my own recipes to that website!
Happy Weekend :)
