- Preheat oven to 400ºF. Wrap each squash half in foil and place on baking sheet. Bake until squash flesh is soft when poked with a fork, about 45 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a large, deep skillet on medium-high, heat oil. Add onion, shiitake and cremini mushrooms, salt and pepper and sauté for 5 minutes. Add turkey and cook for 5 minutes, breaking up with a wooden spoon. Add tomato paste, thyme and smoked paprika. Stir to combine and cook for 3 minutes more.
- Stir in marinara, coconut aminos and vinegar. Add bay leaf, cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 25 minutes. Stir in ¼ cup nutritional yeast. Remove bay leaf.
- To serve, divide turkey mixture among roasted squash halves. Top with remaining 1 tbsp nutritional yeast and basil.
NOTE: If following our meal plan, refrigerate roasted acorn squash halves and turkey mixture separately and reheat when called for.
