I went with another combo sweet/savory dish for this challenge: Stuffed Acorn Squash with Pears and Nuts.
In the stuffing is millet and kidney beans, with sautéed onions, garlic, pear and walnuts; seasoned with salt, pepper and fresh parsley and sweetened with maple syrup. I kind of threw this together, so I don’t have a recipe for you.
This wasn’t heard to make at all. I know that you can’t really see the pears in the stuffing, but I assure you, they are there and they definitely lend a different quality than apples.
I love fall foods.
