Stuffed squash is one of the most delicious and most comforting recipes to make. And my Stuffed Butternut Squash with Lentils, Green Beans and Broccoli hits the spot every single time. It’s a vegan recipe that absolutely shines, even for those of your family members who might not be plant-based. I love how the filling mixture turns golden and crispy in the broiler as it contrasts well with the tender butternut squash underneath. Make it this week and be sure to let me know how much you loved it!
Stuffed Butternut Squash with Lentils, Green Beans and Broccoli
Heat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and brush 2 tbsp olive oil all over the squash. Set on parchment paper open face down and bake for 35-40 min (or until tender and can pierce with a knife)
Meanwhile, add leek and olive oil into a pan with the remaining olive oil. Sauté until golden brown.
Add in broccoli and green beans and let cook for 5-7 min stirring often. Add in dried herbs, salt and pepper, and chili pepper. Stir well.
Add in almond milk, lentils, fresh herbs, almonds and let cook until veggies are tender.
Turn off heat and add lime juice, stir again.
Once the squash is cooked, take it out of the oven, flip it over and add in the veggie filling. Pop back into the oven on top rack and broil for 3 minutes or until golden brown on the edges.
