Kabocha Squash Apple Stew

4270870019_63813db5a3
Ingredients
Kabocha squash
Golden delicious apple sliced
1 C. apple cider
¼ C. currants
1 small onion, sliced
1 tsp pine nuts
Water as needed

Preparation
On the stove top add the currants, then the apples and the apple cider. Boil down until it is reduced and syrup like, about twenty minutes. Add the squash and pine nuts cook covered, adding water if needed. Taste the squash for doneness. Add tupelo honey and water to adjust the seasonings. Serve with garlic toast or toasted spelt bread fingers with roasted garlic. I just bought this wonderful garlic roaster. It roasts about three heads of garlic all at once. Just soak the ceramic ring in water; cut the heads of garlic close to the top; place them cut side down and add a teaspoon of olive oil. Close the lid, press the button and it roasts the garlic in twenty seven minutes. When finished the light shuts off.

Kabocha Squash Roasted

Ingredients
1 kabocha squash
2 Tbsp olive oil
¼ C. tupelo honey
1 Tbsp galangal finely grated
½ tsp Himalayan salt

Preparation
The skin of kabocha squash is very hard, perhaps the hardest of the winter squashes. I tried using a rubber mallet and a cleaver to remove the skin. Then I came across another method. Bring 8-quart pot of water to boil. Add squash whole and boil, uncovered, 3 minutes. Using tongs, flip squash over, then boil another 3 minutes. Drain and let cool. Once squash is cool enough to handle, cut off top and bottom and remove skin with paring knife. Cut squash in half crosswise, scoop out seeds, and cut flesh into 1-inch chunks. In medium oven proof container add olive oil, honey, grated galangal, and Himalayan salt. Transfer to oven heated to 375º and roast until tender, about 20 minutes. Serve with some wilted greens.

med105471_1210_sea_turnip_gratin_sq
Ingredients
¼ C. flageolet or
white beans soaked cooked
2 turnips
1 clove garlic
2 artichoke hearts
1 slice spelt bread made into:
¼ C. toasted spelt bread crumbs
Fresh thyme leaves
⅛ C. almond milk

Preparation
Soak beans over three days and rinse daily under running water. Cook in a pressure cooker or on the stove top. Set aside. Thickly peel turnips and soak in lemon water. Smash the garlic clove to get it to jump out of its skin. Chop garlic finely or put it through a garlic press. Set garlic aside while you cook the artichokes for 30 minutes; cool, then remove the outer leaves, cut out the choky core, and slice into half. Toast bread then grind it into crumbs.
Heat the oven to 350º
Slice the soaked turnips into thin rounds. In an oven proof dish layer the turnips first, then the artichokes, then the beans, repeating layers ending with turnips. Take fresh thyme branches and strip the leaves going backwards with your fingers over the branch. Sprinkle the tian with Himalayan salt and freshly ground pepper. Add a squeeze of lemon juice. Then pour the almond milk and sprinkle the toasted bread crumbs over all. If wanted top with plant based grated cheese. Place in a pre-heated oven for about an hour or until it gets bubbly and the turnips have softened.
