Red Kuri Squash

  • c

Today I bought a beautiful reddish orange squash called a Red Kuri Squash. Anyone have any recipe ideas for it?

  1. Click to Upload a photo (10 MB limit)
  1. Quinoa Bake w/Red Kuri Squash (very satisfying fall/winter dish)

    Preheat to 400 degrees

    1 T neutral oil (canola, peanut)
    1 med onion, diced
    10 'shrooms, sliced
    bell pepper, diced
    jalapeno (or other for heat, if desired)
    1 zucchini, diced
    garlic, minced, to taste
    3 c water
    1.5 c. quinoa (rinsed thoroughly to remove bitterness)
    2 c. peeled, diced red kuri
    1 c. kale, escarole or other hearty green, chopped
    2 T finely chopped parsley

    Saute ingredients thru garlic 5 mins add all others and bring to a boil. Transfer to a covered casserole and bake 35-40 mins or until liquid is absorbed. Remove, fluff, let stand 5 mins

    Now I wish I had one...they're my favorites. Enjoy.
