Last year I made a stuffed acorn squash with wild rice and apples. It was a hit, so I made a Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash this year. I love the presentation of the stuffed acorn squash. So pretty. This quinoa stuffed acorn squash is very easy to make! You can make the filling a day in advance if you like. Then all you need to do it roast the squash the day of.

The sweetness of the acorn squash goes so well with the quinoa. I added the cranberries for a little tart flavor too. I used fruit sweetened cranberries instead of cranberries sweetened with sugar. So they are a little on the tart side, but work well here. This would be a great main meal option for your vegan or vegetarian guests. It’s quite filling!
