Stuffed butternut squash (vegan & gluten free) recipe

Stuffed butternut squash has been on my list for a long time and it’s finally here. Autumn has many beautiful sides and one of them are the wonderful pumpkins. Admittedly, I didn’t spend that much time on the versatile vegetable in the past. However, since going vegan, I have a lot more different and sometimes new vegetables on the menu. The butternut squash is right up there with the rest.

During my research, I noticed that many recipes have a very complicated structure. Add a pot of extra ingredient here and fry out a little extra there. Honestly, I always like things to be simple and with as few steps as possible. Therefore, this recipe is also built in two simple steps. Step number one is to roast the pumpkin in the oven and step two is to prepare the filling. Yes, you read that right, that’s all there is to it.

TIP: Make sure you get a good quality pumpkin. If the pumpkin is not really good, then you can almost forget about the whole dish . A good quality, preferably organic, guarantees an excellent result.

The butternut squash gets to keep its skin and is simply cut in half before going into the oven. Important when cutting is a good base, concentration and preferably a serrated knife. Here you need to be careful and cautious, because the knife can quickly slip. In this video I show (YOUTUBE) how to cut a butternut squash.

Then it is placed in a casserole dish covered with water and baked for about 40 minutes until soft. I turn it over once after 20 minutes so that it browns evenly. For baking time, it depends on how big the pumpkin is and it may take a little longer or shorter depending.

TIP: Here I have summarized brand new my favorite recipes for autumn.

Autumn vegan dishes

I prepare the filling in a large pot, it consists of a little olive oil, onion, garlic, mushrooms, carrots, soy cutlets (previously soaked in vegetable broth), rosemary sprigs, tamari, agave syrup and pepper. At the very end, when everything has simmered down nicely, add the baby spinach.

Once the squash is done, I scrape out much of the pulp and mix it into the filling. At the very end, the pumpkin is filled with it again and goes into the oven for another 5 minutes along with a walnut topping. I would say it’s time to enjoy!

If you’re in the mood for another autumnal dish today, I recommend the following recipes:
