FALL! FALL! FALL! IS HERE, SO WINTER SQUASH is in my life and I am so very happy!! You have to try this ugly looking thing (Kabocha) if you have never had the chance , I swear you will love it. 🙂
I had another “untouched” Kabocha squash hanging around the kitchen and if you know me, I never waste a thing. So I cut in half, scooped out the seeds and baked them. Next, I opened the pantry. “What do I feel like,” I asked. Definitely South Western. I grabbed black beans, re-fried beans, and I sauteed an onion, mixed that with the beans, added seasonings, and added cheese and salsa. I then happened to have Tempeh bacon for the top.
I have made similar meals like this too, Stuffed Kabocha Squash with Couscous, Seitan, and Cheese and Acorn Squash with Couscous and Lentils. ALL are great.
One for me and one for Mark. (NOTE: MAKES A TON for leftovers!) Notice the sign he gets on his… “EAT ME!” The poor guy has been yelled at numerous times by accidentally eating something that may not have been intended for “Guy syndrome.” Most Guys have it, as they inhale the first thing they see and all your efforts on something gets vacuumed up in the blink of an eye, so I gave him a heads up with the note… “Yes, you can eat this.” 😉
Like I said, These are great for leftovers too. Have you tried Kabocha Squash yet??? Enjoy~
