  • 1 butternut squash, about 3 lb
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 1/2 t minced fresh thyme
  • s and p
  • 1 1/4 C water1/4 C plus 2 T crumbled feta
  • 3/4 C quinoa, rinsed
  • 1/4 C dried cranberries, chopped
  • 2 T Taste of Inspirations Honey Chipotle Grilling Sauce
  • 1/4 C hulled pumpkin seeds, toasted (pepitas)



Step 1

Heat oven to 400 degrees
Halve squash lengthwise, scoop out seeds and place cut-side down on parchment-lined baking sheet. Foast until flesh pierces easily with a fork, about 1 hour.

While squash is roasting, heat oil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add shallot, thyme and 1/2 t salt; cook till softened, about 1 minute. Add water and quinoa and bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce heat to low; cook till grains are just tender and liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes.

Scoop flesh from squash centers, leaving a 1/2" border all around; reserve 1/4 C.

Add reserved squash, 1/4 C feta and cranberries to quinoa mix until combined; season with s & p.

Stuff quinoa mix into squash halves; brush with grilling sauce. Bake till quinoa is golden brown, 10-15 minutes. Sprinkle with pepitas and remaining 2 T feta.
