Superfood Stuffed Roasted Acorn Squashes

These stuffed acorn squashes are full of so many superfoods; kale, spinach, garlic, bell peppers, brussel sprouts, and shiitake mushrooms. And not only are these superfoods so healthy for you, they taste delicious as well! 
This dinner is relatively easy to make! You just roast the squashes in the oven, cook the vegetables and ground chicken, and then stuff squashes with filling and top with cheese. Delicious! Now I'm hungry for this amazing dinner! 
Saute vegetables until all are cooked..
Then add in ground chicken and continue to cook!
 Let's get to cooking!

Superfood Stuffed Roasted Acorn Squashes (serves 8)

  • 4 acorn squashes
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 2 cups chopped spinach
  • 2 cups chopped kale
  • 1 cup shredded brussel sprouts
  • 1 cup sliced shiitake mushrooms
  • 2 bell peppers, medium diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 8 slices of fresh mozzarella cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • chopped parsley, to garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place all four squashes whole on a baking sheet and roast for about 40 minutes, or until soft.

While the squashes are roasting, we are going to get started on the filling! Heat coconut oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Once hot, add in onions and garlic. Saute until translucent. Add in bell peppers, brussel sprouts, and shiitake mushrooms, and cook until softened. Add in spinach and kale, and continue cooking. Season with salt and pepper.

Once the squashes have finished roasting, remove from oven and let cool until it's cool enough to handle. Slice squashes in half. Fill each halve with filling and top with a slice of mozzarella cheese. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Garnish with fresh parsley, serve, and enjoy!!
