|Acorn Squash with Brown Rice and Turkey Sausage|
This recipe definitely works for Type B (and maybe O?) as shown but could be modified to work for all types by replacing/omitting the pepper ingredients. From Good Housekeeping. My husband calls this the best thing I've ever made.
How to make it:
2 acorn squash (about 1-1/4 pounds each) cut crosswise in half and seeded
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 pound Italian turkey or chicken sausage
- 1 small onion chopped
- 1 medium red pepper chopped
- sea salt
- 2 cup precooked whole-grain brown rice unheated
- 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
- 1 pound ground turkey (or chicken)
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder [or fresh]
- 2 teaspoons whole fennel or anise seed
- 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes or hot pepper sauce (optional)
- 1/4 cold water
- Mix all ingredients, cover and refrigerate for several hours before using.
- You'll need half of it for the attached recipe and the other half can be for pizza, lasagna, patties, or whatever.
- Lightly grease microwave-safe large plate.
- Place squash halves, cut sides down, on plate (it's ok if halves overlap slightly).
- Cook squash in microwave oven on High 8 to 9 minutes or until fork-tender.
- Set aside until cool enough to handle.
- Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375ª F.
- Line 15-1/2 by 10-1/2 inch jelly-roll pan with foil.
- In nonstick 12 inch skillet heat oil over medium-high heat until hot.
- Add sausage and cook until browned, breaking up sausage with side of spoon.
- With slotted spoon, transfer sausage to large bowl.
- To same skillet, add onion, red pepper, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and cook over medium heat 6 to 8 minutes or until lightly browned and tender, stirring occasionally.
- Add to sausage in bowl.
- With spoon scoop out squash leaving 1/4-inch-thick shell.
- Add scooped-out squash to bowl with sausage and parsley stir in rice (it is not necessary to heat rice as label directs) combine.
- Spoon sausage mixture into squash shells.
- Place in prepared pan.
- Bake 20 minutes or until heated through.
