Quinoa Stuffed Carnival Squash

The previous post on this lacked any sort of directions or prepping (and used acorn and brown rice!).

These two guys have been around since at least October! They were starting to actually turn different colors.

Stuffed anything makes for a great presentation in the end, but holy moly I hate prepping squash. That might have something to do with why there is always an uncarved pumpkin on my porch come December.  Once all the seeds are scooped out, place the squash bowls in a microwave dish, bottoms up and microwave for 10-12 minutes, until tender.

For the filling, prepare quinoa as directed (I use about 1/2-3/4 c. for 2 squashes). Mix in some type of sauted green and peppers. This time I used some WH red mustard greens and yellow pepper.

Stuff it all in, and tuck in a few pieces of jack on the side, and top and shove in the oven for about 20-25 minutes at 400. YJDKIY clearly needs to bust out the toy manual and figure out how to get the focal point to register in the middle of the screen instead of the top third.

Mmmm cheesy fall goodness!
