Cinnamon-Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash

Sometimes, dinner simply needs to be prepped and on the table in less than 40 minutes. Start to finish, this elegant quinoa stuffed acorn squash accomplishes that goal, but it will look like you spent hours in the kitchen creating it! Children are apt to love it, since the flavor profile leans toward sweet, especially with the cinnamon and raisins. Quinoa is a complete protein, so this filling dish would make a great “Meatless Monday” option.

Serves 4
