* 1 ORGANIC RED ONION

1/2 CUP OF ORGANIC CILANTRO

*ORGANIC COCONUT OIL OR ORGANIC OLIVE OIL
*1 TEASPOON OF ORGANIC DILL SEASONING
*1 TEASPOON OF ORGANIC ROSEMARY

*PRE-HEAT OVEN TO 400 DEGREES*
Cut Organic Acorn In Half & Scoop Out Seeds (You Can Replant These Seeds If You Want And Start Growing Your Own Organic Acorn Squash)
Place ORGANIC ACORN in glass dish with a bit of purified water at the bottom so it can steam while cooking in the oven. Add a bit of ORGANIC COCONUT OIL OR ORGANIC OLIVE OIL to the top of the ORGANIC ACORN SQUASH while it is cooking for around 45 minutes in the oven.
It is nice to sprinkle some ORGANIC DILL SEASONING, ORGANIC ROSEMARY or other SEASONING YOU MAY LIKE on top of the ORGANIC ACORN SQUASH too while it is cooking in oven.
While ORGANIC ACORN SQUASH is cooking in the oven ~ make your ORGANIC WILD RICE OR ORGANIC BROWN RICE (Add your favorite herb seasonings to rice). WILD RICE & BROWN RICE take around 45 minutes to cook.
While ORGANIC ACORN SQUASH is cooking and your ORGANIC RICE is cooking ~ PREPARE YOUR SAUTEED VEGGIES.
Cut up ORGANIC RED ONION, ORGANIC YELLOW SQUASH OR ZUCCHINI, ORGANIC FRESH CILANTRO & FRESH TUMERIC (if you have it) into small pieces and saute together in pan with ORGANIC COCONUT OIL or ORGANIC OLIVE OIL until lightly browned (around 10 minutes). Add seasonings that you like to your ORGANIC SAUTEED VEGGIES.
Set your sauteed veggies aside until rice is done cooking. Then add your ORGANIC RICE to the ORGANIC SAUTEED VEGGIES.
Once your ORGANIC VEGGIES & RICE are mixed together stuff it into your ORGANIC ACORN SQUASH for a beautiful mean for you and your family.
This recipe serves 1~2 depending upon how hungry you are ~ double or triple recipe for more people.
I really enjoyed how my ACORN SQUASH looks like STUFFED HEARTS !
Much Love & Happy Eating ~ Chef, Catalina
