Winter Squash Spoon Bread Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 4 small winter squash like delicata, acorn, or sugar pumpkins, halved with all the guts cleaned out
  1. Spoon bread filling:
  2. 3 cups almond milk
  3. 1 1/2 cups corn kernels, fresh or frozen
  4. 1 cups cornmeal (like the cornbread kind, not polenta)
  5. 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  6. 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  7. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  8. 1/4 cup olive oil
  9. 1/4 cups chives, minced, plus more for garnish
  10. Spray oil
  11. Pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. Clean and prep the squash, place them on a lined cookie sheet, and warm the oven to 400°F.
  2. Warm 2 cups of the almond milk in a medium saucepan over a medium-high heat. While that sh*t comes to a simmer, take the remaining cup of the almond milk and the corn kernels and pulse them in a blender or food processor until it looks only slightly chunky in there. In a small bowl, whisk together the cornmeal, baking powder, garlic powder, and salt, and set it aside.
  3. Once the milk is simmering, whisk in the cornmeal mixture, and keep whisking for about 30 seconds so that everything can kinda thicken up. Fold in the corn kernel mix, the olive oil, and the chives and keep stirring for 30 more seconds. The mixture should be lookin' like a thick batter now. Spoon that sh*t into the hollowed-out squashes, spray with a little oil, and stick 'em in the oven for 40-50 minutes or until the squash is tender and the spoon bread looks golden brown in some places. The cook time will vary based on the size of your squashes, so just pay attention. Serve warm topped with some fresh pepper and extra chives.
