Stuffed Acorn Squash With Kale, Spinach, & Mushrooms

If you asked me ten years ago if I could see myself enjoying a delicious stuffed acorn squash packed with vegetables for dinner, I would have probably said NO WAY! Anything that was from the squash family was not on my food radar back then. Meat and potatoes (well, I still love potatoes) were my thing. Yet, ten years later, here I sit.. writing this post and drooling over this recipe I just made. What happened?

Stuffed Acorn Squash


Squash... It's A Wonderful Thing


I seriously did NOT like squash back in the day. These things ranked right up there on the dislike veggie list with mushrooms. Yet, as my taste buds grew up and I started to retry veggies, I realized that squash actually tasted pretty good.

From spaghetti squash to zucchini, my love for all things squash is full blow now.

Adding In Even More Good Stuff


The other day, I stopped by my local natural grocery store as they were having an awesome sale on all kinds of different squashes. Acorn, spaghetti, and even Kacbocha squash. They all looked fantastic, so I grabbed a few of my favorites. I had no idea what exactly I was going to do with them, but I figured coming up with new recipes is the best part of cooking.

Kale, Spinach, and Mushrooms for stuffed acorn squach

Stuffed acorn squash is something I have never made before. I've roasted acorn squash slices for a salad topping, but I've never taken the time to cut it in half, roast it, then stuff it. The pictures I've seen of stuffed acorn squash look great, so I knew this was something I wanted to definitely try.

  6. Looks delicious! Love squash and I have a lot of acorn squash from the garden to use up! Only thing better than squash is stuffed squash. Wait there is also brown sugar, butter, acorn squash that always brings back so many memories but I guess that's stuffed too, only with sugar. Haha.

  7. I was trying to figure out why your acorn squash look so different from mine and I realized it's because we cut ours differently. Too funny.

    We just had stuffed acorn squash tonight. It was amazing. I love yours with the greens, though, so I'll definitely try this recipe next time!
