Paleo Stuffed Acorn Squash

Nothing says fall like squash.  Now let’s stuff them with Paleo Goodness!

Ingredients

2 Acorn Squash

1 pound of your favorite specialty sausage (i.e. Chicken Arizona from Sprouts)

1 zucchini – diced

1/2 onion – diced

1/2 cup carrots – diced

1/2 Red bell pepper – diced

1/2 cup diced tomatoes

Other optional veggies: spinach, cauliflower, mushrooms, etc)

1 clove garlic – crushed

1/2 tsp salt/ pepper

1/2 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp cumin

Olive oil

2 slices nitrate free bacon – cut into small pieces

2 eggs

1/2 cup almond meal

Directions

1.  Cook bacon in pan until it gets lightly crispy.  Add all veggies  except for tomatoes, garlic and spices and saute until crisp done.  Cut squash in half and scoop out seeds and gunk.  Brush with olive oil and dust with salt and pepper.  Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.  Bake Squash for 15 minutes cut side up.

2.Mix bacon/ veggie mixture with remaining ingredients (including bacon grease!) in a large bowl and scoop into acorn squash.

3.  Bake for 45 minutes covered with aluminum foil.

4.  Remove aluminum foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes.

Optional Ideas:

Use your meat as the theme for your spices.  If you use italian sausage, use some rosemary, basil and oregano instead of chili powder.  If you use a sweet apple sausage, add some cinnamon and nutmeg.  If you just use ground beef or turkey you can use my taco seasoning recipe to spice up the meat.

You can really use any veggies you like, so it’s a great recipe for the end of the week when you have some veggies still to use.

Paleo Banana Bread

Here is a Paleo Banana Bread recipe from Amber Karnes, author of The Paleo Table.

Gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free

Ingredients

  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2/3 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)
  • 4 really ripe bananas (mashed well)
  • 2 tbsp local honey
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Sift the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, add the mashed bananas, eggs, honey, and vanilla and mix well.
  4. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet ingredients. Stir until combined. Normally with breads or muffin recipes, you don’t want to overmix, but since there’s no gluten here, mix to your heart’s content. The muffins won’t get gummy or icky.
  5. Fill greased muffin tins, baking cups, mini-loaf pans or big loaf pans about 3/4 full. Bake muffins for 23-25 minutes and loaves for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Let cool slightly and enjoy with a pat of almond butter, coconut oil or grass-fed butter. Mmmm.
