Ingredients

  • 3

    Sweet Dumpling or other small winter squash

  • 1

    onion, chopped

  • 3

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 3

    cups cooked brown rice

  • 1/4

    cup water

  • juice of 1/2 large lemon (such as Meyer)

  • 1/2

    teaspoon lemon zest

  • 1

    tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1/8

    cup minced fresh parsley

  • 1/8

    cup minced fresh sage

  • 1

    teaspoon minced fresh rosemary

  • 1/2

    teaspoon dried thyme (or 1 tablespoon fresh, minced)

  • 2

    tablespoons pine nuts, lightly toasted

  • salt and peppe

Directions

Preheat oven to 400F. Cut the squash in half and remove seeds and strings. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and place face-down on an oiled baking sheet (I used a silicone sheet liner). Bake for 30 minutes, or until tender. (Different types of squash will take different lengths of time. Test by piercing with a fork in thickest areas.) Remove from oven but keep oven turned on. While the squash are cooking, prepare the lemon-herbed rice. Spray a non-stick pan with olive oil, heat, and sauté the onion until it begins to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute. Add the rice, 1/4 cup water, lemon juice and zest, soy sauce, and herbs. Stir well, cover, and cook on low heat just until warm. Add the toasted pine nuts and salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Stuff the rice into the cavities of the squash. Place them upright in a baking dish and drizzle about a teaspoon of water over each. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for about 20 minutes, until hot throughout. Serve warm, garnished with additional fresh herbs, if desired.
