For those of you who have watched the movie Forks Over Knives (FOK), this dish should look familiar. At the end of the movie, there is a wonderful dinner that all of the people in the film enjoy. One of the dishes is this stuffed acorn squash. The recipe is in the FOK book (not the FOK Cookbook).
The filling for the squash is made of a wild rice mix, leeks and celery – I added mushrooms this evening. It is a wonderful, simple dish. I serve it with steamed broccoli or this evening we had fresh Brussels sprouts.
I bake them oil free. Just cut the ends off, add a bit of garlic powder, pepper and enough balsamic vinegar to lightly coat them. Then bake them at 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes, rearrange them at 20 minutes so they bake evenly.
What a harvest time feast.
