BUTTERNUT SQUASH AND APPLE SOUP WITH TOASTED ALMONDS AND WILD RICE
Recipe for Butternut Squash and Apple Soup with Toasted Almonds and Wild Rice from our Soups and Chowders recipe section.

Ingredients

2 cups water (500 mL)
1/2 cup wild rice (125 mL)
1/2 cup sliced almonds (125 mL)
1 1/2 Tbsp canola oil (20 mL)
1 cup chopped onion (250 mL)
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth (500 mL)
2 cups water (500 mL)
1-3 lb (0.5 – 1.5kg) Butternut Squash, peeled and flesh cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes to yield 8 cups (2 L)
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and coarsely chopped
1 bay leaf
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 tsp salt, optional (2 mL)
1/2 tsp nutmeg (2 mL)

Directions

1 – In medium saucepan, bring 2 cups (500 mL) water to a boil and add wild rice. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 45 minutes or until water is evaporated and rice grains have split open. (Check occasionally to ensure water does not evaporate too quickly causing rice to burn). Drain any excess water and set aside.
2 – In nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, toast almonds to golden brown, about 1-2 minutes. Watch so they don’t burn. Remove and set aside.
3 – In large soup pot, heat canola oil over medium-high heat. Add onions, reduce heat to medium and cook for 3-4 minutes or until opaque; do not allow onions to brown. Stir in broth, water, squash, apple, bay leaf and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 25-30 minutes or until squash and apples are tender. Remove from heat and remove bay leaf and cinnamon stick.
4 – Puree soup with immersion blender or food processor. Return to low heat and stir in salt (if using) and nutmeg. Stir in wild rice to heat through. Spoon soup into bowls and garnish each bowl with 1 Tbsp (15 mL) toasted almonds.

This week’s Diabetic Side Dish of the Week is Acorn Squash Stuffed with Wild Rice. To make this week’s Dish you’ll be needing Acorn Squash, Spices, Wild Rice, Yellow Onion, Bosc Pear, Walnuts, Sweetened Dried Cranberries, and more! The recipe is from the CooksRecipes website. At the Cooks site you’ll find a huge selection of recipes to please all Tastes, Diets, or Cuisines so be sure to check it out today for any of your recipe needs! Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2021! https://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html

Acorn Squash Stuffed with Wild Rice
This autumnal side dish goes wonderfully with roasted poultry, ham and pork.

Recipe Ingredients:
3 acorn or dumpling squash
Freshly ground pepper
Freshly ground nutmeg
4 tablespoons butter – divided use
3/4 cup wild rice
1 1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
2 cups water
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
2 Bosc or Anjou pears, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch dice
2 teaspoons minced sage leaves
2 teaspoons thyme, minced
1/3 cup parsley, minced
1/3 cup chopped walnuts, toasted*
1/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries

Cooking Directions:
1 – Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
2 – Cut each squash in half crosswise. Scoop out and discard seeds and strings. If necessary, trim top and bottom so that squash will sit level, and place on a rimmed baking sheet, cut side up. Sprinkle each half with a little salt, pepper, and nutmeg, to taste. Using 3 tablespoons butter, dot each half with some butter. Cover pan tightly with foil and bake squash just until moist and tender, about 45 minutes.
3 – Meanwhile, combine rice, chicken broth, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 2 cups of water, in medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to a simmer, partially cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender, about 40 minutes. When rice is done most of the water should be evaporated.
4 – In a 10-inch sauté pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Swirl to coat the pan and sauté onion, garlic, celery, and carrot until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Add pears and sauté 2 minutes longer. Cover pan, adjust heat to medium-low, and cook vegetables until crisp-tender, 3 minutes longer. Add sage, thyme, and parsley and sauté 1 more minute. Remove from heat.
5 – In a large bowl, combine cooked rice, sautéed vegetables and pears, walnuts and dried cranberries. Taste and add salt and pepper, if desired.
6 – Mound the rice mixture into the squash halves, dividing it evenly. Cut 1 tablespoon butter into small pieces. Dot each stuffed squash with butter. Cover with foil.
7 – Bake at 350°F (175°C) until heated through, about 20 minutes.
Makes 6 servings.

*Toasting nuts brings out their full, rich flavor. Place nuts in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake at 350°F (175°C) until lightly browned, about 5 to 8 minutes. Alternatively, nuts can be browned in a microwave. Place nuts in a single layer on a microwave-safe plate, and microwave on high power for 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Watch carefully that they do not burn.

“Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week – Wild Rice Arugula Salad with Maple Glazed Acorn Squash

July 2, 2018 at 5:01 AM | Posted in Meatless Monday, PBS | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s “Meatless Monday” Recipe of the Week – Wild Rice Arugula Salad with Maple Glazed Acorn Squash. I found this one on many web sites and I’m going with the one from the PBS Recipe web site. The Maple Glazed Acorn Squash and Rice had me sold on the dish! You can find this recipe at the PBS/Recipe website. At the PBS site they have an incredible selection of recipes from all cuisines. So check it out today and don’t forget to Support your local PBS Network! So enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018! http://www.pbs.org/food/recipes/

Wild Rice Arugula Salad with Maple Glazed Acorn Squash
Combine wild rice, maple glazed acorn squash, pomegranate and goat cheese.

Ingredients
For the Acorn Squash:
1 small acorn squash, halved, cut into 1/4-inch slices and seeds discarded
1 teaspoon maple syrup
Salt
For the Rice:
1/2 cup wild rice
1 1/4 cup water
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon olive oil
For the Dressing:
1 tablespoon olive oil
Juice from 1 lemon
1 garlic clove, minced
Salt
Freshly ground pepper
For the Assembly:
3 ounces baby or regular arugula
2 tablespoons minced fresh Italian parsley
Seeds from 1/4 pomegranate
1 ounce goat cheese, crumbled

Directions
1 – Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, spread out the slices of acorn squash. Brush both sides of the slices with maple syrup and sprinkle with a few pinches of salt. Transfer to the oven to roast for 20 to 25 minutes, until the squash is tender with a fork. The cook time may depend on the size of your squash so just be sure to check on it.
2 – Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, set over medium heat, combine the rice, water, salt and olive oil. Bring the mixture to an aggressive simmer and then immediately lower to a gentle simmer and cover. Cook the rice until water is evaporated and until the texture is tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Wild rice depends on the type you end up buying; I’d recommend following the instructions on the back of the bag (it most likely will be similar to these instructions but may vary slightly).
3 – In a small bowl, whisk the dressing ingredients together, along with a few pinches of salt and a few turns of freshly ground pepper.
4 – At this point, you can store all of the components separately and toss everything together before serving. If you want to assemble now, toss the arugula and Italian parsley with the dressing, being sure the leaves are thoroughly coated with the dressing. Add the rice and toss once more. Arrange the slices of acorn squash and top with the pomegranate seeds and goat cheese crumbles.
