"Vegetables, garbanzos, raisins and couscous in a lovely Moroccan broth taste delicious inside butter and brown sugar-brushed acorn squash. You can experiment with different vegetables, or add diced chicken. Feel free to be creative with your amounts - I usually freestyle and end up with leftover stuffing mixture, which tastes great on its own the next day. For vegetarians, substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth." — TRUCKERDOO

Wow, this was great! I didn't think I would like the raisins, but they were perfect. Smells much spicier than it is. I think the spice level is just right. Five stars.
I love acorn squash but I felt the cumin overwhelmed the squash in this dish.
Great recipe! My MIL does not like celery, so I added some Granny Smith apple and a little red onion instead. I used low sodium broth and just a pinch of salt which ended up being much too little. This was so easy to make. The cous cous is just as great on its own as with the squash.
This is a great and very easy recipe. One of the best that I have found for couscous. I cook the acorn or butternut squash in the microwave for about 8-9 minutes which is a real time saver. If you are saving calories use diet pancake syrup instead of brown sugar and melted butter.
This was really yummy! However, the veggies didn't get soft enough before the garlic and such started burning and sticking to the pan. So we ate them a little bit crunchy. Oh well. :o) The squash was tender and perfecto!!!!
This was pretty good, but a bit bland. My boyfriend hates raisins, and he wasn't won over to liking them in this recipe, either, though I thought the raisins were the best part. I used vegetable broth since it's what I had on hand, but I think chicken broth would've been better. I also added some chopped chicken breast. This made WAY more filling than needed for 4 halves of acorn squash, and I wasn't crazy about the filling by itself. It was missing something. If I were to make this again, I would tweak around the spices, probably add more cinnamon and/or ginger.
Speechless! Made it for the in-laws the first time around and it was a hit! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Ran out of brown sugar, so I used honey instead...turned out great!
This is great! This is the only way we eat Acorn Squash now. It is a great last-minute meal with very little prep - good for when you have run out of meat. As other reviewers have said, it does make a lot of stuffing - but as the photos show, you can pile it up over the squash to make generous servings. Thanks for a delicious recipe!
