I’m so proud of the dinner I made lat night hahah!
My grandma grows they Patty Pan Squash in her harder, and gave them to my family. We had no idea what to do with them, so I looked them up for recipes, and constructed these with a general idea of what I wanted!
First, preheat the oven to 350`F, and start cooking a cup of Quinoa in 2 Cups water. (Or a broth, but I’m watching sodium)
Then, I cut the tops off of the squash and started to scoop out the insides. You have to be careful not to break through the skin (totally did that a few times) and save the insides for later in the recipe.
After that, start to brown your meat. I used turkey burger, and seasoned it with
Start to also sauté your mushrooms in the same or different spices in some kind of oil- I used coconut oil.and don’t forget fresh basil!
Take the insides of the squash that you saved, and dice it up. Take half that amount and add it to the pan with the mushrooms before the mushrooms are cooked all the way through.
Sauté them together until they’re both almost done.
Add about a handful of spinach, and soften the leaves up.
Note:they will continue to soften when you put the squash in the oven.
By now, your quinoa should be done cooking (depending on your instructions).
In a separate bowl, or a pan that is big enough for everything, combine all the ingredients.
I added everything in proportionate amounts, but ended up putting everything I had in the mixture.
You can do however much of each thing you want, though.
Now, get to stuffing your squash!
Cover the pan with foil and Place the squash in the oven for 30 minutes.
You can top them with cheese, or not!
And enjoy! :)
