Beautiful and easy Thanksgiving recipe, easily adapted to different tastes with our Expand The Table options for family and friends.

Couscous Pilaf Stuffed Buttercup Squash 

This is the season to buy those rustically beautiful winter squashes. These large squashes are so tempting—inexpensive, healthy and our favorite way to prepare them is to stuff them.  They are filled with fiber and can easily be baked, mashed or pureed.


You may use any winter squash—acorn, butternut, or pumpkins. Buttercup squash is larger and just perfect for Thanksgiving or any larger crowd.


Stuffing Buttercup Squash makes an amazing presentation and is our favorite way of eating it. We love couscous pilaf, so easy to prepare, but try any grain, adjusting the cooking time. 


You have so many choices for the stuffing—the recipe is easily expandable for a variety of vegetables, cheeses and meats. See our Expand The Table at the recipe's close to fit the tastes of your family and friends.
