Our vegan baked squash recipe is easy to prepare and looks beautiful for company.  The natural shape of the acorn squash makes a fancy “dish” for any type of filling! You can use traditional stuffing for thanksgiving, rice or another grain, or fill with sauteed veggies.  You can bake the squash and prepare the filling the night before and reheat right before your company arrives.  Add color with yellow or purple tomatoes for the garnish. 

Note: this is a great recipe for anyone following an oil-free diet.
