Happy #halloween and #tastytuesday! Today I have a special holiday specific recipe for you that I’m bringing back from last year-#pumpkinsoup in a#pumpkin! Note this one is a little challenging but definitely worth it! Just give yourself plenty of time!
ingredients:
chicken (3-4 thighs)
1/2 bag baby carrots
canneli beans (1 can)
1 cup rice
seasonings of your choice (e.g. Salt, pepper, garlic, oregano, basil)
Recipe:
1. Cut the top off the pumpkin, clean all the strings and seeds out
2. Preheat oven to 350
3. fill 3/4 of the pumpkin with water
4. put the chicken- uncookedand carrots or any other veggies you choose first (can always add in other squash)
5. use a light coat of olive oil on the outside of the pumpkin
6. Bake for 50 mins-1 hour with the top on. 7.Take out of the oven, Purée veggies inside if desired.
8.add in 1 cup uncooked rice and can of beans.
9. Cook for another 20 mins with the top on. 10.Take out again and take off the top putting the fleshy side up on the pan.
11. Bake for another hour. Check to see if the inside of the pumpkin is soft/ingredients are cooked through. (May need an additional 30-45 mins)
Serve and enjoy! I recommend putting the pumpkin in a pot when your done for storage just in case the bottom begins to give out!
Also as a vegan option you can add extra #beans in place chicken!
Hope you enjoy this delicious #holidayrecipe !
Wishing you a happy, healthy, and safe Halloween!
All the best,
