Stuffed Acorn Squash
(created by Me)*
6 oz lean ground turkey
1/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp curry powder
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (homemade is great)
1 slice raisin or whole wheat bread, cubed (3/4 cup)
dash or two of ground cinnamon
Grease baking dish with a little olive oil, halve the squash, discard seeds, put
cut side down on dish.
Bake uncovered at 350*F for 50 min. (watch it, sometimes it doesn’t take as long, depending on how large the squash is).
Meanwhile, cook turkey, celery and onion in skillet with a little olive oil (don’t cook it high if using extra virgin oil) Drain off fat. Stir in seasonings, cook
1 minute more. Stir in applesauce and bread cubes. Turn squash over in dish, put
stuffing mix in squash halves, bake 20 minutes more uncovered.
(This year I am going to add a little bit of fresh diced apples too)
*This is my favorite Thanksgiving side dish. I created it about 3-4 years ago from another recipe that wasnt so healthy.
A lot of times stuffing bothers my stomach, but this one doesn’t.
