Normally, I put butternut squash in my tacos. But this week, I put all the taco yumminess inside my butternut squash. Helloooo Butternut Squash Taco Bowls!
The original title for this recipe was going to be “Quinoa & Black Bean Stuffed Butternut Squash”. I’m not always the most creative recipe name-giver (obviously), but I’m pretty proud of myself on this one. Butternut Squash Taco Bowls…so many good things come to mind! Who doesn’t love a taco bowl? Plus, it’s much easier to say than the initial name.
The only problem with this recipe is that we were wanting more after finishing our halves. Next time I’ll buy a larger butternut squash 🙂
What else is there to love about this recipe? Let’s see, it’s:
Low in fat
A complete source of protein
High in vitamin A and vitamin C
A good source of fiber
This recipe can be a life-saver during the week when you have limited time to spend in the kitchen. You can prep the butternut squash on the weekend by roasting it, then when things get wild and crazy during the week, just prepare the quinoa and it’s fiesta time! Olé!
