Thread: apple-stuffed acorn squash

  1. #1


    this strikes me as a really good fall or thanksgiving recipe. it's very yummy, and i counted one half as 5.5 points. enjoy! [img]graemlins/wave.gif[/img]

    1 acorn squash
    1 tbs. light syrup
    1 large tart red apple, chopped
    2 tbs. chopped nuts
    2 tbs. packed brown sugar
    1 tbs. margarine, melted

    heat oven to 350. cut squash lengthwise in half; remove seeds and fibers. place squash cut sides up, in ungreased pan. spoon 1 tbs. syrup into each half. bake 30 minutes.

    combine apple, nuts, brown sugar and margarine in a bowl. spoon mixture into squash halves. bake about 30 minutes longer or until tender.

    one quick note: recipe should be 2 tbs. light syrup (one tbs. for each half.)

    the points probably vary because of what kind of syrup, margarine (i used i can't believe it's not butter light), and nuts you use.

    still, even at 7 points, it's worth it. very filling and delicious!
