Directions

  1. Wrap each squash half with plastic wrap.
  2. Place wrapped squash, cut side down, in microwave; cook on high until squash is tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Leave squash wrapped while preparing filling.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir red bell pepper, radish, leek, celery, jalapeno pepper, and garlic in the hot oil until softened, about 10 minutes. Add vegetable stock and rice; stir to combine. Cover and simmer until broth is absorbed and rice is tender, about 45 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle greens into rice mixture; cover and simmer until greens are wilted, about 5 minutes. Add curry powder, curry paste, and walnuts to rice mixture; stir to combine.
  5. Unwrap squash and set halves, cut sides up, into 4 soup bowls. Spoon about 2 tablespoons feta cheese into each squash half. Add a large scoop of rice mixture atop feta layer. Top rice mixture layer with any leftover feta.

I used bleu cheese for feta; spinach in place of greens; and instead of rice, a mix of 2 parts kef and 1 part millet. I cooked the empty squash halves in more conventional fashion; next time I would butter them before filling.

Healthy and Yummy! I pretty much followed the recipe, except used jasmine rice since I had no brown rice, so shortened the time of simmering to 18 mins. My acorn squash was pretty large so I cut it in 4, and placed flesh down in a microwave safe roasting dish, covered with plastic, so it took a little less time. It needed a little salt, next time I will add it before serving. The curry and red curry paste make the dish. The feta cheese was a great addition on top. Definitely jazzed up the acorn squash!

This was excellent! I followed very close only did not have brown rice so used half white and half wild.
