Stuffed Delicata Bites

Simplicity is key to a happy holiday season. And of course, this includes everything going on in the kitchen. It should be all about simple ingredients, light seasoning and quick preparation. The following recipe is a great example of what that means. Our stuffed pumpkin bites highlight the sweet, nutty flavor of the delicata squash without piling on the calories or fat, and you can even make them in advance for a family dinner.

Stuffed Delicata Bites – Ingredients
  • 1 Delicata squash
  • ½ Cup of finely chopped onions
  • 2 Cups of finely chopped kale
  • 1 Cup of wholegrain bread, in small cubes
  • 1 Cup of fresh spinach 
  • 1 Cup of shredded carrots
  • 1 Pinch of salt and nutmeg
  • 2 Cloved of garlic, mashed
  • 1/3 Cup of veggie stock
  • Olive oil
1. Cut the delicata squash into 2 inch slices. Then, cut in half and remove seeds. Roast with a little salt and olive oil at 350 degrees until tender (about 35 minutes.)

2. Meanwhile, sauté the onions with a good drizzle of olive oil. Once translucent, add the garlic and carrots. Cook for a couple of minutes before adding the rest of the veggies. Cook for another 2 minutes and add the bread. Sprinkle the nutmeg and salt. Add the stock, mix well and cover with a lid. Turn off the heat and let it sit for a couple of minutes.

3. Stuff the squash and serve with seasoned rice or a salad.
