My friends are foodies too!

This recipe comes courtesy of my friend Allison. It’s honest food and very very good!

Stuffed Cabochon Squash
For 4 hungry people (or 8 people who are willing to share a squash with someone else).
4 round cabochon squashes (note, this would also work with any kind of squash that you can “stuff”)
1-2 packages Trader Joe’s cooked brown organic rice (the frozen kind)
(OR – you can just make your own rice 2-3 cups total.)
1 large onion Seasonings to taste
(garlic powder, basil, pepper, etc… anything you like, really.)
4 small pats of butter
Some parmesan cheese
Pre-heat oven to 425
Cut the tops off the squashes and scoop out the insides, but keep the tops.
Cut up and fry the onion until it is caramelized
Cook the rice according to the package (45 sec’s in the microwave if you are using TJ frozen brown rice) Add the rice to the onions and stir it up
Add your seasonings… I like putting in garlic powder, pesto, pepper. But anything works that you like – a curry might work as well?
When it tastes good, take the mixture and stuff it into the squashes.
Bash it down so each squash is full.
Add a pat of butter to the top of each stuffed squash and push it down a bit (so it doesn’t melt out of the squashes)
Sprinkle some parmesan cheese on top Bake for ONE HOUR in a baking pan.
Bake them with the tops off but include the tops in the pan so they can cook too.
Put the tops on when you are done and serve them with their little hats on.
