Squash it! (Acorn Squash filled with Soysauge Risotto)


I love winter squash and this was fantastic. I took all of the great winter veggies in the crisper and combined them to create SQUASH IT.

One Acorn Squash - cut in 2 hollow out and cover with agave syrup while preparing the below:
Olive Oil
1/2 yellow onion chopped
2 sprigs of thyme
3-4 garlic loves chopped 
Veggie broth for sauteeing 
1/2 cup dried sundried tomatoes 
1-2 small zuchini squash 
1-2 cups button mushrooms
1-2 field roast sausages chopped and on the side

Simmer aborio rice (risotto) in veggie broth. Keep it slightly covered with the broth as the rice cooks. 
Sautee all above ingredients on medium heat saving the quick cookers for last - the Zuchinis and the Mushrooms.
As the rice becomes tender, add the squash and mushrooms to your veggie mix  for roughly 5 minutes
combine the rice once the veggie broth has cooked out 
and mix the rice and veggies pull check to make sure the squash is tender and fill 
and serve with your choice of greens.
