Happy Stuffed Acorn Squash

I have a 4 day food hangover. URGH!! I think I have added to 2 inches to my waist size. I need healthy food stat. Nothing with gravy, butter, sugar or fat added. Need some veggies full of wholesome TLC. Winter squash is a perfect dish for a crisp winter night- after you go to the gym of course.

Ingredients: 

  • 1 acorn squash
  • 1 cup onions, diced
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, in pieces
  • 1/4 cup Happy Hemp
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger, grounded
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves, grounded
  • 1 Tablespoon margarine
  • 1/2 cup brown and 1/2 wild rice to make one cup
  • 2 cups water

Directions:

  1. After cleaning the squash, cut in half along its length (top to bottom) and scoop out the seeds.
  2. Boil water in a covered cooking pot on the stove top. Add to seasonings, margarin and rice. Cover and reduce temperature to a simmer.
  3. Add raisins and onions. Simmer until all water is absorbed into the rice.
  4. Remove from heat and mix thoroughly. Let stand 10 minutes.
  5. Add walnuts and Happy Hemp to rice mix together.
  6. Stuff the squash halves with the rice mixture and lightly drizzle olive oil over top.
  7. Bake in a covered roasting pan at 350 for about 1 hour, or until the squash is tender.
  8. Enjoy!
