Butternut Squash Boats

I don’t like to waste anything when I am cooking so I try to use as much of the food as possible, below is a recipe for squash boats but I also made a single serving of butternut squash soup using the squash I carved out to create the squash boats and I made a tasty snack by baking the squash seeds

Ingredients:

2            butternut squash

½           Onion

½           Mushroom

1 cup     Kale

2            Garlic cloves

1 cup     Cauliflower rice

1 cup     Broccoli rice

2            chicken sausages (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

  3. Mince onions, garlic, and chicken sausages. Heat olive oil in a pan and add minced ingredients, cook for about 10 min or until onions are soft
  4. Add kale, cauliflower rice, and broccoli rice and cook for an additional 2 min
  5. Clean, drain, and dry the squash seeds. Salt and pepper them and put them on a baking sheet
  6. Take squash out of the oven flip them over and fill each squash with the mixed ingredients.
  7. Put squash, and squash seeds into the oven and cook for 10 min.
