Try this healthy and filling Quinoa Stuffed Butternut Squash recipe. An easy and super simple vegetarian meal, that is packed full of flavour and so tasty!

Ingredients

  • 1 medium sized butternut squash (£0.60)
  • 100 g quinoa (£0.30)
  • 1 onion (£0.15)
  • 50 g feta/goats cheese (£0.50)
  • A few cherry tomatoes (£0.25)

Cupboard Essentials

  • 500 ml vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper

Method

Preheat oven to 200°C.

  • Heat the butternut squash for 5 minutes in the microwave, this will make it easier to cut in half. Once it’s heated, slice through and score the squash, removing the seeds. Glaze both pieces with a tbsp of olive oil.
  • Pop in the oven and set the timer to 45 minutes ( this will vary depending on the size of your squash so check regularly). Relax for 25 minutes!
  • When your timer has 20 minutes left, place the quinoa in a medium sized saucepan, pouring in 500ml of vegetable stock. Reduce heat to simmer.
  • Meanwhile, add the sliced onion and tomatoes to the baking tray with your squash.
  • When the timer is up, all the components of the dish should be ready. Season with salt and pepper, with the feta/goats cheese and fresh parsley to serve!
