“This is a great way to use up leftover cooked chard, and a good way to make squash savory instead of sweet. Plus, it only has a few ingredients and is quite easy! Delicious!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut the acorn squash in half length wise (a big knife works best -- be careful!), and scoop out seeds.
  3. Place squash cut side down in a baking dish, add a small amount of water (about 1/4 cup), cover with tin foil and place in oven. Cook 30 - 40 minutes, or until very tender when pierced with a fork.
  4. Meanwhile, wash, de-stem and chop chard & finely chop or press garlic.
  5. Heat oil over medium-high heat in large pan - add garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  6. Add chard and saute until reduced in size and wilted, about 5-7 minutes.
  7. When the squash is tender, remove from the oven and fill each cavity with sauteed chard. Mix in shredded gruyere with chard.
  8. Place filled squash back in oven for a few minutes, just enough to melt the cheese.
