Recipe: Healthy Acorn Squash Dinner (Vegetarian)
Lately I have been trying to think of easy, quick meals to make that are also healthy, and this is now one of my favorites! I simply cut an acorn squash in half, and then microwave one side (face down) for about five minutes (The time depends on the size of the squash. Check on it mid-way!). Once the flesh seems soft, I take it out of the microwave and let it cool for a bit. I fill the center with diced up pepper (I use red but any color pepper would do) and apple, sprinkled with sunflower seeds on top. I think this combination is nice with the zesty-ness from the pepper, the sweetness of the apples, and the nutty flavor of the seeds. And this meal is quite filling! I usually have a hard time finishing everything (probably because I overfill the squash, as you can see in my picture!).
Try it and let me know what you think! What are your quick and easy healthy foods?
