    JanuaryBride's Note:

    Only 7 ingredients and made in the microwave, so you can throw this together in a jiffy. Great comfort food for the fall and winter months. Tart, sweet and good for you too. Perfect for those on a low sodium diet. NOTE: I have made the celery optional and I agree it is better without. I also use WAY more butter and cinnamon than what the recipe calls for :)

      I made this for my husband and I; neither of us have ever eaten acorn squash before. We like it a lot. I would definetely add cinnamon and pumkin spice to this dish. Very easy and quick to make.

      There is nothing not to love about this recipe! It's EASY to make, delicious, filling, healthy, and affordable. I will definitely be making this again. I couldn't believe it came out of my microwave. I made as directed except for using Earth Balance instead of butter, and a small drizzle of honey instead of sugar. Personally, I would never omit the celery. I think it balances the sweetness of the fruit. I chopped it up into tiny pieces, though, so maybe that helps it get cooked. The filling looked like a lot, but it was just about the right amount to fill the two squash halves. I topped them with some extra chopped walnuts for additional protein. Made for Veg*an Swap, March 2010.
