  • 2 small delicata squash about 12 ounces each, halved and seeded
  • 6 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt divided
  • 1/2 cup bulgur
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 8 ounces lean ground beef 90% or leaner
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1/2 cup nonfat or low-fat plain yogurt
  • 4 teaspoons toasted pepitas


  • Preheat oven to 425.
  • Brush the cut sides of the squash with 2 teaspoons olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Place cut side down on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile bring the bulgur and water to a boil in a small pot. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Drain well.
  • Heat the remaining 4 teaspoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for about 4-5 minutes. Add the beef, chili powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook until the meat is browned and cooked through about 5 minutes. Stir in the bulgur and cook for about a minute and then stir in the yogurt.
  • Spoon about 3/4 cup of filling into each squash half. Top with the toasted pepitas.
