The Moosewood Cookbook

By Mollie Katzen
Ten Speed Press - 1977

Another good way to prepare squash. I use the rice option (sometimes brown or a combo with wild rice), and I think that other grains such as quinoa or barley would probably work. Same cooking times and temps as the other stuffed squash recipes in this book; 400 for 20 min then 15 stuffed.

Stuffed Squash, Filling Two: Apple : page 128

One of my favourite ways to cook squash. I raise the oven temp to 400 to shorten the cooking time and use various types of squash such as acorn and butternut. I also score the flesh of the larger ones such as bigger butternut. I've added the optional currants/walnuts and both are good. Timing for me is usually to bake unfilled squash about 20 minutes, then filled about 15 minutes more.
