BAKED APPLES WITH QUINOA APPLE PINE NUT STUFFING low fat
If you don’t want to do the apples, that’s just as fine. Serve stuffing from stove-top as is. Perfect either way! However, the apples do add a festive touch to a festive holiday! And they’re easier than pie to make!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
6 lg. apples, I used McIntosh, because they were the freshest at the market – wash, core, keeping each apple intact
In 9×13 inch baking dish place cored apples, top side up.
Stuff each center firmly with stuffing.
Surround the apples evenly with remainder of stuffing.
Cover tightly with foil.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. If not fork-tender, bake up to 30 minutes longer, which is what I did. You be the judge. I like my baked apples soft to bring out the apple flavor.
Remove from oven and serve. I used this as my main dish for Thanksgiving.
