All your favorite breakfast goodies put in one sweet acorn squash bowl to make us feel like fall has finally arrived.
I love this acorn squash breakfast bowl because it means that fall has arrived and brought squash season with it! One of my favorite vegetables is winter squash — pretty much of any kind! There are so many varieties: butternut, spaghetti, acorn, delicata, buttercup, kabocha, pumpkin, etc. I think my #1 is the kabocha squash, which is not quite as common as others, but it should be! It’s divine. It’s very creamy making it perfect for purees as well as roasting.
Second on that list is probably acorn. Partly because they are just begging to be stuffed with deliciousness! There’s just something extra fun about putting food inside a food bowl, ya know? I’m talking fried rice in a pineapple, fruit salad in a watermelon, and even the good ole stuffed pepper!
This recipe originated from some of my fellow dietetic interns (Hiiiii Amanda & Kayla!), and we even made this video during our internship to show you how simple it can be to make this acorn squash breakfast bowl ahead of time!
It’s both a very simple + versatile recipe because basically, once you’ve got your acorn squash bowl, you can fill it with whatever your heart desires! Greek yogurt + granola, oatmeal + nut butter drizzle, fruit + yogurt, cereal + milk… I haven’t actually tried that last one, but I bet it would work too! You could just eat the squash after you finish the cereal! 😉 I’m sure it would look extra fancy.
I give you a few different options in this recipe. It may look like it’s not very practical for busy mornings or bringing it for breakfast at work, but if you just microwave it the night before, you’re 90% of the way done! I’ve enjoyed this both cold from the fridge and piping hot. I think the majority will prefer it warm, but why not give both ways a shot?
