Stuffed Acorn Squash
I had never had an acorn squash until I started receiving them in abundance from my work share CSA program at a local organic farm. A friend recommended stuffing them with "whatever", so I decided that apples sounded good.
You could make this a main dish by adding in some crumbled cooked sausage or bacon.

- Heat oven to 400F. Brush cut sides of squash with 1 tbsp of the coconut oil and sprinkle with black pepper. Bake for 50 minutes to an hour in the oven until fork tender.
- While squash is baking, heat remaining tbsp of coconut oil in a medium skillet. Add apples and onion, and saute until tender. Add garlic and stir until fragrant. Add cinnamon, cumin, and salt, and remove from heat.
- Spoon apple filling into the baked squash and return to the oven for another 15 minutes.
