Great presentation! I love that it's an eponymous dish (maybe someday I'll name a dish after myself, hehe :).

"I kept to the idea of including kidney beans and roasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds to up the amount of protein (I always worry that she isn't getting enough)."
You are *such* a mom, Ann! That made me smile a bit!


How sweet! I'm the only mostly-vegetarian in my omnivorous family, and I would be so, so touched if my mother made me a special vegetarian centerpiece (she did make me cranberry sauce last year, but hasn't ever so much as ordered a pizza without sausage - I usually make my own holiday suppers, or take over the entire meal preparation to make sure I have something to eat). I'm sure Sophie appreciates it!

Love the recipe! I bought a cute little mini pie pumpkin yesterday - I think I might stuff mine with lentils. Or French Onion Soup. Or maybe I should just buy some more mini-pumpkins . . .

Oh yeah we are definitely in the same boat, even trying to make a vegetarian centerpiece. I'm thinking vegetable pot pie these days though because I have this frozen puff pastry that's taking up way too much space in the fridge. How long does it take to cook though? Sigh! The complications that come from trying to make everybody happy!

Amazing coincidence that we were both planning to make a stuffed pumpkin initially though!


Oooh. I've tried Nigella Lawson's baked stuffed pumpkin recipe, but this looks much tastier.

(Just for the record, I think you've got a protein-rich dish here even without the extra pumpkin and sunflower seeds. Quinoa is a complete protein.)


manggy, you know... it was pretty tasty, too. The one modification I'll be making next week is more black pepper to give it a little more zing... or maybe even a small amount of red papper flakes in the grains... and yes, I *am* such a Mom... :-)

Karyn, I can't wait to see your entry! And um... maybe mention this post to your Mom...? Sort of a "hint-hint" kinda thing?

Kyla, so is it going to be pie or a pumpkin or something else entirely? Let me know what your end up with!

Adele, oh yes, I know about quinoa... I just try to load her food up with protein because I know she isn't always getting what she needs when I'm not making her dinner. :-) I haven't seen Nigella's version of this-- will have to go and find it. Thanks for stopping by!


That looks great. I love pumpkin and I'm always looking for new pumpkin recipes. I'm not a vegetarian, but I wish someone would make stuffed pumpkin for me!


Yay! I am so excited for Thanksgiving! I have told all my friends about my special meal by the way, and they think it's so sweet you're making it. xox


Wow, i consider myself a carnivore bordering on cannibal but that's actually something i would eat. It looks great! I never know what to do with millet but that sounds like a great use for it.

Not to plug my blog but....I will. I found this one on a dirty note card and it's one of my favorites:


I always use the whole berry cranberry sauce, or it just tastes metallic to me.
