Squash Boats

Makes 2 servings

  • 1 average size Delicata (Sweet Potato) Squash
  • 1 tomato, cored and cut into pieces
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 1/4-inch ring from large green onion, diced
  • 1 tsp cooked and crumbled bacon
  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 Tbs lite parmesan shreds
  1. Wash the squash, then cut it in half, from end to end.  Remove the seeds and soft flesh from each half with a spoon, and discard.
  2. Place the cleaned halves, cut side down, on a micrwave plate and cook till soft.  Depending on your mike, this may take 6 to 10 minutes on HIGH.  Today I cooked this squash for 8 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, coat a frypan with non-stick spray and place it on medium heat.  Add the tomato, onion, and green pepper and cook till softened, about 4 minutes.  Then add the cooked rice and heat through, about 2 more minutes.
  4. Plate the cooked squash, and place half of the cooked vegetable mixture into each piece of squash.
  5. Sprinkle the veggies with bacon bits and parmesan shreds.
