Roasted Acorn Squash
If small acorn squashes are unavailable, use larger ones and cut them into wedges.
Acorn Squash Stuffed with Mushrooms and Rice
These work as well on the Thanksgiving table as they do on a meatless Monday.
Kamut and Roasted Vegetables
Kamut is an ancient grain that's twice as big as wheat and boasts a buttery flavor and toothsome bite. It's the perfect partner for coriander-roasted squash and carrots.
Acorn Squash Bisque
The smooth texture of acorn squash gives this pureed soup its character; only a little half-and-half and butter are needed.
Sausages with Acorn Squash and Onions
The sweetness of squash and dried cherries is the perfect counterpoint to savory sausages.
Chopped Winter Salad
Colorful, crunchy, and seasonal, that's our strategy for making a winter salad. Crisp radicchio and escarole are teamed with roasted acorn squash and shiitake mushrooms and combined with crunchy pepitas and pomegranate arils. There's a lively dressing with apple-cider vinegar and olive oil and a sprinkle of feta tops it all off.
Stuffed Acorn Squash with Quinoa and Pistachios
Quinoa's a complete protein, and it will easily fill up guests who skip the turkey. If you're serving vegans, swap the feta for some nutritional yeast, which has a mild nutty, cheesy flavor.
