Acorn Squash with White Beans & Sage

Sage is the perfect fall flavor to complement sweet roasted acorn squash. Cannellini beans, also called white kidney beans for their classic kidney shape, make the simple dish a filling vegetarian main course. To make it an entree, double the serving size.


  • 2 acorn squash, halved and seeded
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 (15 oz.) can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • ¾ cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • 3 tsp. chopped fresh sage, divided
  • 1 medium tomato, diced


  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Place squash cut-side up on a baking sheet and bake until tender (20-25 minutes).
  2. While squash bakes, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion, carrot, and garlic, and cook until vegetables are tender (15 minutes). Add beans, broth, salt, pepper, and 2 teaspoons chopped sage. Heat to boiling, cover skillet, reduce heat to low, and keep warm.
  3. Place squash halves, cut side up, on platter. Fill each half with one-fourth of bean mixture. Sprinkle with diced tomato and remaining 1 teaspoon chopped sage.
