Hey everybody! My name is Lindsay, and I have a food blog called Pinch of Yum. And how excited am I to be posting on 100 Days of Real Food today? SUPER excited! I’m a huge fan of Jason and Lisa and their real food lifestyle.
Today I wanted to share a recipe with you that might be useful as we come up on farmers market season. This Roasted Corn and Quinoa Stuffed Squash recipe has lots of fresh produce, and it can be adapted based on whatever you might have on hand. And if you are a person who likes to cook your own black beans rather than using canned, now is the time! I made a bunch of spicy black beans in my slow cooker the day before I made this recipe, and the flavor of the homemade beans with the quinoa, cheese, and spices took this recipe from yummy to YUMMMMMMY.
This is one of those recipes where you probably have everything you need in the pantry, fridge, or freezer already, which is extra wonderful in the summer.
Bring on the Roasted Corn and Quinoa Stuffed Squash!

I have always stuffed sweet potatoes but never thought to do squash! Cannot wait to try this recipe, thanks Lindsay for sharing it!
Any thoughts on making the recipe dairy free?
Hi. I just leave out the cheese. ;)
I like hers recipes very much :)
When I do not know what to do for dinner, I always reach for her blog :)
Hi Lindsay, Lisa & Jason,
First of all thanks to all 3 of you for sharing wonderful, healthy recipes. I haven’t acknowledged before, but I have cooked quite a few of your recipes and it has been enjoyed by family & friends.
Well i have a question for Lindsay regarding steaming/roasting of the squash. When you say place the water in the baking pan, is it the same one in which you place your squash or another cup of water to make some steam? Could you clear it up for me please??
Thank you once again, and hoping to cook more of your creations.
I recognized the picture before you even introduced the guest blogger. Pinch of Yum recipes are a staple in our kitchen at home. Love the creativity and passion for good simple food.
Totally unrelated, I was in Target a few days ago and spotted Smucker’s new Fruit and Honey spread. I was so excited! Sweetened with only honey! I can’t wait to be able to shop one day at major food chains and buy foods with a “100 Days of Real Food” Approved label on it. Make it happen! :)
Beautiful recipe! I love stuffed squash and never thought about stuffing it with black beans. Can’t wait to try this recipe with my farmer’s market ingredients. Thanks for the special guest blog post!
made this tonight for supper – with 8-ball zucchini instead and added the zucchini pulp (ground in the food processor) to the stuffing. It was delicious! Thanks!
Looks yum :-) I’ve never cooked corn that way– was thinking it would work well on the cast iron skillet? I bet this would be an awesome early fall dish– sounds hearty and warming.
Hi. Let us know how the cast iron works.
My two favorite bloggers, united! Yay!
This recipe sounds awesome, can’t wait to try. :)
