This bowl with roasted acorn squash, pecan nuts, kale, and black rice is the perfect fall bowl! It’s warm, delicious, comforting and very simple to make.
Pennsylvania is a very beautiful place for the fall season. I’m surrounded by trees filled hills with orange leaves. It’s very magic! I love these colors, it’s very inspiring.
Now, I can find so many squashes at the supermarket, I love these they remind me of the garden of my grandfather! There are different colors of squash and each of them has a different taste. Today, I tried the acorn squash! I don’t think I have it in France. We are more boring about squash, we have butternut, “potimarron” (small pumpkin) and pumpkin. Now, there is some spaghetti squash but it’s not common.
To add some greens, I choose kale, it’s also a fall veggie and it’s very healthy. I usually cook it a little bit in a frying pan because I find it too crunchy when it’s raw.
The other ingredient I love so much is black rice! It’s my favorite rice, very tasty and the healthier. Its black color makes it rich in antioxidants. I found it a few years ago, I was always preparing it in a salad with roasted sweet potatoes, arugula, feta cheese and pomegranate, a pure delight!
I’m sure you will like this bowl! It’s simple with few ingredients and very healthy. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram!Print
