Delicata squash makes a perfect “boat” to stuff with everything you need to make a complete and fun meal! This AIP dish comes together quickly and is a great meal any time of day.


  • 2 whole delicata squashes
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 red onion, minced
  • 3 celery stalks, minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed or minced
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 cups kale, stems removed and leaves chopped
  • 1/2 cup bone broth
  • Salt to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425° F.
  2. Cut each squash in half lengthwise to form four long “boats.” Scoop out and discard the seeds. Place squash halves face down in a baking dish and roast in oven until soft (20-25 minutes).
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the filling. In a skillet over medium heat, heat 2 tablespoons coconut oil. Cook onion and celery, stirring, until soft (5 minutes).
  4. Add garlic cloves and cook, stirring, until fragrant (about 1 minute).
  5. Add ground turkey, and break up with a spoon. Cook until no longer pink, stirring (about 5 minutes).
  6. Add kale and bone broth. Stir to combine well. Add salt to taste and then allow kale to wilt and then remove from heat until squash is done.
  7. Remove squash from oven, carefully turn over, and sprinkle with salt. Divide turkey and vegetable filling evenly between the four “boats.” Return to oven and bake for 10 minutes.
