 Ingredients List

  • 2 sm Acorn Squash, Abt 14 Oz Each
  • 1 c Nonfat Vegetarian Broth,
  • -Chicken Flavor
  • 1 ts Vanilla Extract
  • 2 ts Lowfat Margarine
  • 4 Sprigs Fresh Thyme
  • Ground Red Pepper, For
  • -Garnish


Preheat oven to 375 deg F. Spray shallow baking dish with nonstick cooking

Halve squash lengthwise; scoop out and discard seeds and pulp. Arrange
squash cut-side up in prepared baking dish.

I adjusted the original recipe a bit...changed the regular margarine to low
fat and low sodium broth to nonfat vegetarian chicken flavored broth.

In small bowl, combine broth and vanilla.

Place 1/2 tsp low fat margarine in each hollowed-out center. Add 1/4 C of
the broth mixture, 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1 thyme sprig to each. Add enough
water to baking pan to fill it to 1/2". Bake until tender, about 1 1/2 hrs,
brushing cut edges of squash every 30 minutes with some of the broth
mixture in the center and adding water to the pan as necessary. Sprinkle
with pepper.

This was very, very good.
