Ahhh, October. I’ve waited for this month all year—the month where chilly air starts to creep in, Halloween decorations line every storefront, and the hunt for the perfect pumpkin begins! To go along with the autumn theme, our Recipe of the Week theme is squash! And don’t forget other delicious varieties, such as zucchini, pumpkin, and spaghetti squash.
Need more convincing? Squash is a great source of antioxidants, vitamin C, fiber, and more! Perfect for showing your friends and fam that veganism is healthy and delish, I bring you my Stuffed Acorn Squash!

I swear, this might seem fancy, but believe me, it is SUPER simple, so don’t be intimidated! This is a great way to pack a lot of powerful, healthy veggies into one delish dish. Brown rice, kale, and black beans are all rich in protein and vitamins, and the taste is sure to wow folks. Another great thing about this dish—it’s CHEAP! All the ingredients should be available at your local grocery store for next to nothin’.
