2 acorn squash
2 tbsp. of honey
2 tbsp. olive oil ( use more if you need it)
1-2 cloves of garlic
1 small to medium onion chopped
1 cup of match stix sliced carrotts
1 chopped red pepper
A small handful of raisins (I used yellow)
1 can black beans
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 c. chopped fresh cilantro
salt and pepper
If you need to cook your rice, do so first. In the mean time, cut and clean squash. Drizzle a little honey over the acorn squash halves and cook in a baking dish in the oven until tender (about 30 min.).
In a skillet in olive oil cook garlic, onion, carrots, raisins and red pepper till tender. Then add cooked rice and turmeric. Blend well. Rice will become yellow in color.Add drained, rinsed black beans and the chopped cilantro to the yellow rice mixture. Remove once combined.
After squash is cooked, drizzle with a small amount of honey again if desired and stuff with rice mixture.
Cook 10 more minutes in oven if needed, but not necessary.
