  • 1 tablespoon Spiceology Greek Freak Blend
  • 3 acorn squash, halved lengthwise and insides scooped out

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425.

  5. When your acorn squash are done with their first bake, remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before stuffing with your meat and grain mixture. 
  6. Top with more goat cheese and place in the oven for an additional 15-20 min. 
  7. While the acorn squash is roasting, combine the greek yogurt, olive oil, Greek Freak Seasoning, juice from half a lemon, and salt and pepper. Mix well or shake in a squirt bottle. 
  8. When Stuffed Squash is complete and flesh is tender, remove from oven, drizzle with sauce and top with additional cheese, pistachios and mint. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Acorn Squash can be subbed for any other squash with edible skin. Delicata would be an amazing swap. 
  • To cut down on time and add convenience to this dish, you can use a bag of precooked grains. (We won’t tell!)
  • To enhance the flavours of the blend, you can also add honey, ginger, red pepper, and turmeric.
