From the EatingWell website its – A Full Harvest: Stuffed Vegetable Recipes for Fall. Delicious and Healthy recipes like; Roasted Stuffed Pumpkin with Spiced Pumpkin Seeds, Stuffed Eggplant, and Polenta-Stuffed Kabocha Squash. Find these and more all at the EatingWell website. Enjoy and Eat Healthy! http://www.eatingwell.com/

 

 

A Full Harvest: Stuffed Vegetable Recipes for Fall
To celebrate Autumn, turn fall’s best vegetables into cornucopias of plenty. Try stuffing luscious roasted eggplant with curried pork and shrimp. Tuck briny oysters, nutty Parmesan and fresh herbs between tender artichoke leaves. Fall vegetables take center stage in these delicious stuffed vegetable recipes.

 

Roasted Stuffed Pumpkin with Spiced Pumpkin Seeds
This roast pumpkin with a mushroom-and-bread stuffing is a beautiful vegetarian entree for the holidays. Use a small pumpkin if you can find one, but a winter squash like kabocha or buttercup also works. For a special garnish, save the seeds from the pumpkin, toss them with spices and roast them. If you use a squash, opt for store-bought pepitas; the squash seeds are too woody to eat….

 

Stuffed Eggplant
In this Italian stuffed eggplant recipe, fresh breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese and parsley make a simple, yet delicious filling for an “inside-out” eggplant Parmesan. Serve these stuffed eggplants as a light dinner along with a big salad…….

 

Polenta-Stuffed Kabocha Squash
The cheesy polenta filling in this healthy stuffed squash recipe makes a great alternative to mashed potatoes, as well as a hearty vegetarian entree. If you can’t find kobocha squash, try using a buttercup squash or pie pumpkin–or skip serving it in the hollowed-out vegetable altogether and use 2 cups of your favorite pureed winter squash in Step 5………

Pumpkins………

 

Eating pumpkin is good for the heart. The fiber, potassium, and vitamin C content in pumpkin all support heart health. Consuming adequate potassium is almost as important as decreasing sodium intake for the treatment of hypertension (high-blood pressure).

Guests can watch as we boil the cider down, add the thinly sliced apples and then cook the homemade apple butter in copper kettles over an open fire. There will be cider pressing and other apple-themed activities as well as homemade apple dumplings, pies and other treats to enjoy! Enter a homemade pie in our pie baking contest on Saturday.

Low-Calorie Pumpkin & Winter Squash RecipesEatingWell2

Diet-friendly recipes for pumpkin, butternut squash, acorn squash and more.
Winter squashes, such as butternut, acorn and pumpkin, are a delicious and diet-friendly seasonal food. Enjoy squash in comforting recipes like Butternut Squash Soup, Roasted Stuffed Pumpkin and Spaghetti Squash & Meatballs.

 

 

Amazon Bean Soup with Winter Squash & Greens
Shaped like a flattened drum, buttercup squash most closely resembles the local squash used in this comforting hearty soup from northern Brazil. It has a dark green peel, a grayish turban-shaped top and dense orange flesh. Hubbard, butternut or delicata squashes could also be used. Instead of the lip-numbing Brazilian green jambu, we have used spinach. For a more festive look, serve in a roasted squash half……

 
Stuffed Delicata Squash
In this Tex-Mex-seasoned stuffed delicata squash recipe we swap out half of the ground beef you’d normally use for bulgur to reduce saturated fat without skimping on the amount of stuffing. Serve with a mixed green salad with cilantro vinaigrette….

 
Mushroom, Squash & Chicken Salad with Sesame Dressing
In this healthy main-course chicken salad recipe, dandelion greens and curly chicory pair marvelously with a wildly flavorful mushroom-sesame dressing, roasted chicken thighs and succulent roasted squash. Toss the salad with the dressing just before serving so the greens don’t get too wilted……
