I cut a squash in half, scrap out the insides and then put in stuffing. I have changed the stuffing to make it healthier. I use a lot of scallions, celery and a little amount of bread with about 6 ounces of lean ground beef. (I change the meat for a different taste). Pack the stuffing into the squash cavity, cover with tin foil and bake. Sometimes I bake potatoes on the side, sometimes I don't. Either way, it is one complete meal with very little dishes. :)

Instead of making pumpkin pie, I made pumpkin custard when my kids were at home. They liked it better than pumpkin pie and I didn't tell them it was a healthy substitute.

I really like the recipe for Made-over Pumpkin & Sausage Casserole in the Spark People recipe file.

I have also made Pumpkin Butter using Coconut sugar instead of white sugar.

I'm not losing weight...I'm getting rid of it! I have not intention of finding it again!

Just yesterday I made Pumpkin Butter:

I'm going to use it to flavor plain greek yogurt, overnight oatmeal, coffee... Not to mention as a yummy spread for whole wheat toast!

I love that I can use the whole squash. I roasted the seeds for snacking, and I chucked the waste into my compost pile.

When you have a garden, as I do, you tend to gorge yourself on veggies that are currently in season. Where I live that means in May we start eating asparagus, then come the leafy greens and radishes and green onions, then green beans... and so on. Even if you don't garden, it's usually more economical to buy the things that are in season. Autumn here means we are eating our fill of carrots, beets, and squash; and, of course, many of us are buying pumpkins to decorate for Halloween! So let's hear about your favorite recipes for using winter squash and pumpkins --

I recently tried a recipe for "simple roasted butternut squash" that I found on allrecipes.com and it was a hit for us!

allrecipes.com/recipe/simple-roasted
-b
utternut-squash/


All you need to do is peel, seed and cube a medium-size butternut squash and mince a couple of cloves of garlic and combine them in a bowl, along with a couple of tablespoons of vegetable oil and a bit of salt and pepper. Spread on a shallow baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) for about 30 minutes.

I love roasting all sorts of veggies, it really concentrates the flavor and brings out the natural sugars -- yum!

Hope we'll see lots of ideas for using these nutritious veggies in this thread!
