Delish by Design: Stuffed Acorn Squash!

Delish by Design: Stuffed Acorn Squash!

This is sure to please even the pickiest eater in your home. A warm, hearty fall meal fit for a feast! I’d also encourage you to add grilled pork or roasted chicken to this dish for even more dazzle.



  • 1 halved and seeded acorn squash
  • 3 Tbsp plus 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 diced large onion
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh sage
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1/3 cup cooked white beans
  • 1/3 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup chopped kale
  • 2 Tbsp chopped toasted hazelnuts, divided
  • Lemon


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Brush squash with 1 tsp oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast cut side down until tender, about 30 minutes. Flip and set aside.
  2. Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until tender, about 6 minutes. Add sage, thyme, beans, quinoa, and kale. Cook, stirring, until greens wilt, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Divide stuffing between squash halves and roast until golden, 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. For each serving, sprinkle with 1 Tbsp hazelnuts, drizzle with 1 Tbsp oil, and squeeze with lemon.

Cook’s Note

Refrigerate stuffed squash in an airtight container up to three days.
