Fall is here!! Time for some fall recipes. Squash in particular :) When it's still warm enough to fire up the grill, try these stuffed grilled acorn squash!!  Fill them with whatever you like, they are so easy & delicious to make. 


Time: 20 minutes 


  • 1 medium acorn squash
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil  
  • salt  
  • filling of your choice


  1. Cut the acorn squash in half long ways, scoop out the seeds. Shave off a small piece of the round end of each squash so that the sides will stand up without rolling.
  2. Drizzle with olive oil & grill flesh-side down on medium heat for about 8-10 minutes or until tender.  I used a grill mat for easier clean up!
  3. While the squash is grilling, you can prepare your stuffing mixture.  I used a mixture of farro, kale, roasted butternut squash, & pecans, tossed in a pomegranate balsamic vinaigrette.
  4. Remove the squash from the grill & flip over so the flesh side is now up.
  5. Scoop in your desired filling & enjoy!
