Stuffed Roasted Acorn Squash (Vegan)

The only vegetable I had left was Acorn Squash and an Onion. So I decided to roast it and make Stuffed Acorn Squash for a filling but healthy dinner. The Tofu is cooked in almost a Mexican style, I added the bag of frozen corn that I had left. And topped off with the the Pomegranate seeds harvested from our tree over the weekend.

It would make a great entree for a vegan/vegetarian Thanksgiving dinner. And kids loved it too 🙂 They wanted extra stuffing!!

What you’ll need:

  • Acorn Squash – 2
  • Red Onion – 1
