Serena Poon: Quinoa Stuffed Butternut Squash
“I love butternut squash for its exceptional health benefits, including high levels of vitamin A, fiber, and antioxidants, as well as for its delightful sweet and nutty flavor that adds a unique twist to any dish,” says celebrity chef, wellness expert, nutritionist, and Serena Loves founder Serena Poon, who has worked with A-list clients like Kerry Washington and studied at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu culinary school.
“This dish, a personal favorite for any day and particularly fitting for Thanksgiving, perfectly combines the natural sweetness of the squash with the nutty depth of quinoa,” she adds. “The addition of vibrant pomegranate seeds not only introduces a burst of color but also contributes a rich source of antioxidants and longevity promoting polyphenols, while the toasted pine nuts add a delightful crunch and a dose of heart-healthy fats.”
“Although this recipe may take a bit more time than others, the result is a nutritiously rich, flavorful feast that’s worth every minute spent!”
