  1. Pre Heat Oven to 400 F

  2. Cut Honey Nut Squash in Half; Remove Seeds

  3. Brush Squash with Olive Oil, season with salt and pepper

  4. Place Squash face down on a baking pan, put in oven for 35-40 minutes, or until it can be easily punctured by a fork (Flipping them half way)

  5. Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan, saute onions with butter or olive oil until they’re translucent and soft. Cooking them slowly over low heat will start to caramelize the onions. Add more oil if they start to stick to the pan. Stir occasionally while you prepare the other elements of the meal.

  6. Add 1 1/2 cups of water to a medium sauce pan; add quinoa, cover and bring to a boil

  7. Once water has boiled, turn down the heat and let simmer until water has been absorbed

  8. Combine cooked quinoa, diced apple, cooked onions & apple cider vinegar in a bowl

  9. Mix thoroughly, add salt and pepper to season as desired

  10. Once squash has softened, remove from the oven; allow to cool

  11. Place quinoa & apple mix in the pit of the squash, and enjoy while warm.
