A flavorful winter dish that’s equally tasty and delicious? Winter squashes like butternut, kabocha, and today’s highlight, acorn, are your answer. We teamed up with Nikki Elisheva of My Sweet Belly to share her recipe for the low-calorie dish. “Acorn squash is an ideal lower-carb vegetable. It’s delicious sweet or savory—a great alternative to sweet potato mash! For an even lower-carb dinner item, stuff the squash with cauliflower rice, adding all your favorite veggies. Kabocha and acorn are the most similar to potato and sweet potato. Compared with the trending low-carb vegetables, stuffed kabocha and acorn are the best choices, with 11 grams and 15 grams of carbs, respectively. Either can be used in this recipe,” she shares. Learn the step-by-step directions for the seasonal meal below.
