Delicata Squash w. Rice and Beans

Delicata Squash stuffed with Seasoned Black Beans

VeganMoFo Day 3!

Much like yesterday’s post I had another Delicata Squash that was needing to be eaten. ASAP. I also knew that I needed to make something quick and easy for dinner that the kids would eat without any complaint. It almost always translates into Rice and Beans for dinner. The kids love it and I can hide a lot of veggies in the beans. (I finely shred zucchini and carrots which melt into the beans.)

I roasted the tiny Delicata in the oven for about 20 minutes earlier in the day. When it was time for dinner I reheated them in the oven until they were warmed through and then filled them with already hot seasoned black beans and served the rice on the side. The squash added a really nice flavor and texture to a dish we eat once or twice a week making it sorta like a new dish for us. I look forward to serving the rice and beans this way again during winter squash season!

    Hooray for more delicata squash! Filling a squash with rice & beans is one of my fave easy, go-to meals. Love the black beans in yours, nom.

    Delicata tastes just like it’s name…delicate. One of my favorite squashes because of this.

    I love this! It looks so fancy, but its a nice easy vehicle for vegan protein and assorted yum. Plus who doesn’t love squash!
