    Anyone who says vegetables cannot be delicious has certainly never tried a Moroccan-style stuffed acorn squash. It is a unique combination of vegetables, garbanzos, raisins, as well as a side of a lovely Moroccan broth that is delicious no matter how you make it. If you’re someone that likes to add their own preference to a dish, you can get creative and add diced chicken or other vegetables that you feel like adding to this. Perfect for vegetarians if you remove the chicken broth and great for meat lovers if tweaked with desired meat, this dish is an easy crowd pleaser!
