Stuffed butternut squash recipe
Ingredients:
1 large butternut squash
1/4 cup pecans
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
1/4 onion, chopped
3 stalks of celery, chopped
1 large carrot, chopped
1 medium apple, chopped
1 tbsp chopped rosemary
1/2 tsp sage
2 tsp thyme
1 tsp savory
1/2 cup TVP (textured vegetable protein)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup water
1 cup cooked wild rice
1/4 cup dried cranberries, chopped if large
1/4-1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)

directions:
1. Cut squash lengthwise, remove seeds, and bake at 375F for 45-60 minutes or until the squash is soft.
2. In a dry pan, roast pecans on medium heat until they have darkened in colour. Remove from pan and set aside
3. In a large frying pan, saute garlic, onion, celery, carrot, and apple in oil over medium heat until soft and onions are translucent.
4. Add the rosemary, sage, thyme, and savory to the pan and mix together.
5. Prepare TVP but adding TVP, garlic power, onion powder, black pepper, and water to a small bowl. Mix and wait a couple minutes before adding to the saute.
6. Add 1 cup of wild rice to the saute and mix well for a few minutes until heated through.
7. Remove saute from heat and add chopped pecans, dried cranberries, and salt. Mix and set aside.
8. Hollow out squash leaving 1-1.5″ of flesh inside and pour saute mixture into one half of the squash. You may need to use you hands! Place the other half of the squash on top and tie with butchers twine.
9. Bake for 25 mins at 375F. Serve hot!

Gravy recipe
ingredients:
1/4 onion, chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tbsp oil
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp tamari (or soy sauce)
2 cups vegetable broth

Directions:
1. On medium high heat in a small pot, saute onion and garlic until soft in oil.
2. Add 1/4 cup of flour, mix well. This will create a very dry roux.
3. Add a small amount of vegetable broth until the flour forms a thick paste. Stir well.
4. Add rosemary, thyme, black pepper, and tamari and mix well.
5. Add vegetable broth and mix well using a whisk. It will take 1-2 minutes of stirring for the flour to dissolve.
6. Bring gravy to a boil, stirring often until it thickens to a nice consistency (about 3-5 minutes).
7. Remove from heat, let cool for a couple of minutes and then add gravy to a blender and blend until smooth! Serve hot (this gravy can be prepared ahead of time and reheated!).

  1. This is PERFECT for me right now!
    Butternut Squash is by far my favourite veg, and I'm currently experimenting with loadsa different vegan gravies and boom! some of my favourite vegan YouTubers drop this bad boy!
    Also, I'll take youse guys' word for it that the TVP is easily turned into something delicious and I'll get myself a lil bag of it and see what I can do with it 🙂 The only change I think I'm gonna make is to this recipe, though, is to use Chestnuts instead of Pecans since I've recently foraged a personal record of 7.7lbs of 'em! but also because it will add a little more Christmassiness to the dish (even though I hate Christmas and whatehaveyou but I'm at the stage of life where I'm hosting shit like that now, but I digress!). But no man, everybody knows Simnett Nutrition kick arse when it comes to sauces, and gravy is technically a sauce so I'm all in on your method haha!
    Thanks guys,
    all the best from across the pond
