weeknights


From Monday to Thursday I try to keep it simple and healthy when it comes to preparing dinner for my family.
I try to incorporate as much vegetables as I can for side dishes and the main course.
Squashes are everywhere in Uganda, sold at every market, the side of the road, grocery stores, and available year round. For me it is a luxury because I love them. You can make savory dishes and sweet dishes with these versatile vegetables.
One of my favorites is the nutty acorn squash, also also called pepper squash, Des Moines squash, and gem squash. It is small and very easy to work with. Bonus: it fluffs just as spaghetti squash.

{ How to }
Cut the squashes in half, drizzle them with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast them in the oven at 400degrees for about thirty minutes.
For the stuffing, heat olive oil in a pan caramelize chopped white onions and one garlic. Then add chopped mushrooms, watercress and chickpeas. Season with cumin, salt and pepper.
Enjoy!
