Gluten & Dairy-Free Acorn Squash Burrito ‘Bowl’

Use Squash as an Edible Bowl and Up Your Nutrition Game!

Most of us are familiar with the idea of a bread bowl or a tortilla bowl, but have you ever eaten a meal out of a squash bowl? Halved acorn squashes naturally form two bowl-shaped, single-serve sections, perfect for filling with whatever toppings your heart desires. The best part is that while bread and tortillas are definitely lacking in the nutrition department, squash is actually one of the healthiest foods you can eat. Acorn squash is rich in antioxidants, potassium, vitamin C, and fiber, all essentials of a properly-functioning, healthy body.1 Its nutty, mildly-sweet flavor and creamy texture pair well with just about anything, from curry to barbeque to Mexican-inspired flavors (as seen in this recipe).
