Stuffed Maple Glazed Acorn Squash

From the chef: “Maple syrup from The Maple Guild is the key ingredient here as it perfectly caramelizes the squash in the oven. I use farrow as I love the texture but if you are GF feel free to use quinoa or brown rice. This recipe is also perfect for a holiday meal prep or to be prepared ahead of time!” - Chef Bai
