Serves 4 | Prep Time 20 | Cook Time 50

Ingredients

2 delicata squashes

⅓ cup pearl barley

1 small apple

1 small carrot

2 green onions

parsley

pine nuts

dried cranberries

olive oil

salt and pepper


Preheat the oven to 350°. Cut the squashes lengthwise and seed them. Brush the squash with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place the squash cut side down on a baking sheet and roast for about 45 minutes.


Meanwhile, in a small saucepan heat a little olive oil and fry the barley for 2-3 minutes.


Add 2/3 cup water, salt and pepper. Cover and cook over low heat until all the water is absorbed and the grains are tender. Leave it to cool slightly in the pan.


Toast the pine nuts, dice the carrot and apple, chop and onion and parsley and mix them all. Add your favorite dressing (in my case lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil) and toss well.


Add the cooled barley to the salad and mix.


When the squashes are cooked fill them with barley salad.

Notes

The other day when I was into town I bought 2 delicata squashes thinking what a flavorful soup I’m going to make out of them, but of course I changed my mind and today I decided and stuff them with some fall salad. So, browsing the internet I ran into some recipes more or less tempting. I picked something from each one and came up with my version with stuffed delicata, of course mostly based on what I already had in my pantry
