I bought acorn squash a couple of weeks ago and I decided tonight was the night to roast them. I had a plan to make a savory dish, but then I remembered I had vegan Field Roast breakfast sausage in my freezer and immediately I thought of breakfast. So I made a batch of quinoa and mixed everything together to make this protein packed sweet (but not overly sweet) meal. It came out amazing and was very simple to make!
- 2 acorn squash, cut in half
- 1 cup cooked quinoa (Cook according to directions
- 6 Vegan Field Roast breakfast sausages, cut into small chunks
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- Cinnamon to taste
- 1 tsp olive oil
Roast the acorn squash face down on 400 degrees for about 40 minutes or until soft. Cook the quinoa according to package. Scoop out the flesh of the acorn squash and put in a separate pan with the sausage and cooked quinoa. Drizzle the maple syrup and add some cinnamon to taste. Cook until warm and then serve in the acorn squash shell! Enjoy!
