Tomory and I needed some major comfort food last week, so after hearing about this recipe on NPR, I decided to give it a whirl. So easy! Just a little planning ahead is involved.
Earlier in the day I gutted the pumpkins, prepared the stuffing (I used Gruyere, bacon, chives, day-old baguette, salt, pepper- and later heavy cream with plenty of freshly grated nutmeg), and roasted the seeds (why waste them?).
So satisfying- but one 1 lb pumpkin could have easily fed us both- especially with the sauteed greens tossed with pomegranate seeds (from our yard!) that I made as a side.
Thank goodness we started biking- we rode around the Rose Bowl the day I made this- a light meal this is not. But I love food. Comfort will pretty much always win out over worrying about calories with me!
