We love this season for the great variety of squash - acorn, butternut, spaghetti and we could go on. The other awesome thing in abundance are Apples. Our apple rhubarb crumble would be the perfect complement to this vegan stuffed acorn squash recipe. It features fresh apple, which pairs beautifully with acorn squash

How To Make Vegan Stuffed Roasted Acorn Squash
- 2 Medium Acorn Squash
- 2 Tablespoons Extra-virgin olive oil - Divided
- ½ Teaspoon Salt
- ½ package Tofu
- 1 tablespoon Sesame oil
- 2 cloves Garlic - Minced
- ¼ cup Mushrooms portobello & shiitake
- ½ large Carrot - Large
- 2 tablespoons Soy sauce
- 1 tablespoons Braggs Animos
- ¼ cup Green onion - Chopped
- 2 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley for garnish
Maple Soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon Cornstarch + 2 tablespoons water -Mixed into a slurry
- 1 ¾ Water
- 1 tablespoon Soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons Maple syrup
- ¾ teaspoon
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper for easy clean-up.
- To prepare the squash, use a sharp chef’s knife to slice through it from the tip to the stem. I find it easiest to pierce the squash in the center along a depression line, then cut through the bottom, flip and finish cut by slicing through the top portion just next to the stem. Use a large spoon to scoop out the seeds and stringy bits inside, and discard those pieces.
- Place the squash halves cut side up on the parchment-lined pan. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over the squash, and sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon of the salt. Rub the oil into the cut sides of the squash, then turn them over so the cut sides are against the pan. Bake until the squash flesh is easily pierced through by a fork, about 30 to 45 minutes. Leave the oven on.
- Meanwhile chop carrots, peppers, garlic and onions. Sauté over medium-high heat. Cooking for about 5 minutes or until onions are translate.
- Add tofu and mushrooms, about 4 to 5 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
- Remove squash from oven. Divide the mixture evenly between the squash halves with a large spoon. Return the squash to the oven and bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until golden brown on top.
- Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon chopped parsley and serve.
