This recipe is a bit out of place for this time of year. It feels much more like fall than spring. But sometimes it’s good to just go with what looks good. And when I spotted some acorn squash in the market earlier this week, I couldn’t help myself from picking one up. Or perhaps my subconscious was just rejecting the notion that bathing suit season is right around the corner and instead pining for the change in season that welcomes more clothes. Either way, this recipe is light, hearty, and makes a quick and yummy lunch or dinner. Feel free to mix up the spices, add in some ground beef, or change up the veggies to make it your own.

Pierce the squash all over with a knife. Place in the microwave and cook for 8 minutes until tender. You can also roast it for 35-50 minutes at 350 degrees. Once cooked, carefully cut in half and remove the seeds.

Meanwhile, heat the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic, onion, and mushrooms. Cook for 4-6 minutes. Add the brown rice, parsley, and spices and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.
