Total Time
1 h 15 m


medium delicata squash, cut in half lengthwise, seeded
2 tbsp
maple syrup
30 mL
2 tsp
olive oil, plus more for greasing
10 mL
medium onion, finely diced
1/2 cup
125 mL
1/2 tsp
2 mL
1 cup
passata (strained tomato sauce)
250 mL
1/4 cup
finely chopped parsley, plus extra for garnish
60 mL


Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C) and grease a baking sheet. Place squash halves cut-side down on prepared baking sheet. Bake 40 min., or until tender. Remove from oven; turn flesh-side up. Brush squash cavities with maple syrup. Bake additional 10 min., cut-sides up.

Step 2

Meanwhile, in medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook 3 to 4 min., until it starts to soften. Add 1 cup (250 mL) water; bring to a boil. Stir in quinoa and salt. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, 15 to 20 min., until water is absorbed. Fluff with fork. Gradually stir in enough passata (you might not use it all) until quinoa mixture is moist and can be mounded. Mix in parsley.

Step 3

Divide quinoa mixture into squash cavities. Bake about 10 min. to heat through. Sprinkle with extra parsley to serve.


Try substituting equal quantity of millet for quinoa. Acorn squash can be used instead of the delicata.
