Delicata Squash Stuffed with Red Quinoa

I had a lot of red quinoa stuffing left after I made the Quinoa Chiles Rellenos the other day. I decided to stuff a delicata squash I had on hand.

In a classic case of photo fail, I neglected to get side shot of the delicata squash, so I cannot show you how beautiful it looked.

Delicata Squash Stuffed with Red Quinoa

1 medium delicata squash
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp honey
2-3 cups of red quinoa stuffing
1/4 cup cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 375ยบ.

Split the squash, clean out the seeds and guts. (I save the seeds for toasting and tossing on salads.)

Put the squash in a casserole dish cut side up with a 1/2 inch of water in dish.

Sprinkle with salt and drizzle with honey.

Cover with foil and bake 30 - 45 minuntes, until squash is fork tender.

Remove from oven and fill squash with stuffing.

Return to oven and bake uncovered for 15 minutes.

Sprinkle with cheese and return to oven for 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
