  • Summary

    This is a tasty dish. Between the kale, the rice, and the squash, it’s chock-full of fiber, antioxidants, and minerals. And the nutty, salty Pecorino Romano cheese gives it a quiet punch. This makes for a hefty side, and if you add shredded chicken to the stuffing, it becomes a light entrée.

    Ingredients

    • Extra virgin olive oil
    • 2 acorn squash, cut in half and seeded
    • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • 1 cup wild rice
    • 1 shallot, chopped fine
    • 6 Tuscan kale leaves, ribs removed and leaves chopped fine
    • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • Zest of 1 lemon
    • Handful of fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
    • 1/4 cup toasted walnuts, chopped
