It is my habit to sit down, decide what I’m going to cook in a week, make up a list and shop from that. But sometimes I impulse buy veggies. Recently it was some nice looking organic delicata squash. Delicate have a lovely sweet taste, cook pretty quickly and don’t require peeling.
My usual go to dish for delicata squash is Tanya’s Asian Creation from How It All Vegan. Delicious, but I wanted to try something different. After consulting The Googles, I thought I’d try a stuffed squash dish, this White Bean and Kale Stuffed Delicata Squash. It’s sort of an Autumn dish, but it called to me since I have a sage plant growing outside. One of the only culinary plants that stands up to my neglect. Shout out to the rosemary bush too! The only ingredient in this recipe that isn’t already vegan is the parmesan, which I just replaced with a vegan version.
The squash turned out to be really tasty. They’re also pretty healthy with your orange and green veggies, a nice protein and minimal oil. These would also be worth a bookmark for holiday meals. They’d make a nice main dish that could travel already stuffed and be baked off at the final destination.
We had them with a side of the leftover Artichoke Potato Gratin that seemed never-ending (but we did finally finish off, yay!)
