Acorn Squash - Greek Influenced

Author Notes: What to do with leftovers, or the "only one left" things you have in the fridge. The acorn squash added a sweetness to the quinoa mixture. You can use less onion if you like, or I think adding just a touch of garlic would also be good. You could probably add just about anything!Vegegail
