After searching the depths of the freezer abyss and the pantry, I came up with ground turkey, dried cherries and small grain brown rice.
Here's what I did. Highly recommend this!
- saute ground turkey with generous amounts of extra virgin olive oil (that stuff can dry out like the bottom of my sister's boots). add a small amount of diced onion, 1 tbsp of fennel seed and a large pinch of kosher salt.
- put 1/2 cup dried cherries in a saucepan. cover with water. bring to a boil. shut off heat and let cherries sit while turkey is sauteing.
- make one batch of brown rice with salt and butter in the water.
- mix all ingredients together. generously but loosely fill each half with the mixture.
Perfect healthy but really satisfying dish for a cold fall evening.
Two squash down. Eleven to go.
