Cranberry Apple stuffed Acorn Squash (core +1)

Recommended Posts

I made this up last night and could not believe how incredible it was. It was super easy and super quick, can be done in under 30 min. The stuffing is very good on its own and would be great as a side dish as well. (I'm thinking Thanksgiving)


2 med. acorn squesh, halved and seeded

1 med. tart apple, cored and chopped fine

1c fresh cranberries choppeed fine

1 c cooked bulgur

4 Tbs Surgar Free Maple Syrup

15 gm chopped pecans (count pts)

2 Tbs Splenda Brown Sugar (count pts)

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp fresh ground nutmeg



Place the halved squash on a plate and microwave for 10 minutes, or until just soft. Prepare 1 cup of bulgar. While squash is cooking, chop apples and cranberries. Heat apples and cranberries on high for 4 minmutes in microwave. Place fruit in mixing bowl with hot bulgur, pecans, Splenda Brown, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix together. Take softened squash and drizzle 1 Tbs of maple syrup over each half. Fill the center of each squash with 1/4 of the cranberry apple stuffing. Heat in microwave for an additional 4 minutes. Serve and enjoy.


Serves 4
