This is a long-time favourite in our house, and it’s the perfect thing to make when you want to impress someone, but don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen! In the time that it takes to bake the squash (40 minutes), you make the rice and sauté the rest of the ingredients so it’s all ready at the same time. I used to make this dish with a few sides, but it’s so filling that no one could finish! This is a great meal to make for non-vegans, because they’ll be so full and satisfied that they won’t miss meat at all! I’ve made it for Thanksgivings, Christmases, Cottage Dinners, Family Dinners.. you name it!
You can totally make the cranberry sauce that’s in the recipe… but I just buy a canned cranberry sauce and had the juice of half an orange ;).
The other great thing is that all the ingredients can be found at any grocery store!
