How to Make BUTTERNUT SQUASH WITH BLACK RICE

Step-by-Step

  • 1Heat oven to 400. In a deep saucepan heat 1 T olive oil. When the oil shimmers, add garlic and onion and cook 2-3 minutes or until onion is soft.
  • 2Stir in the rice and 2 cups of water. Add salt and pepper to taste and bring to a boil. Turn the heat to low, cover and simmer til the water is absorbed and rice is tender but still has a little bite, about 40 minutes.
  • 3While the rice is cooking toss the squash with remaining 2 T of oil, paprika, maple syrup and salt to taste. Spread in a baking sheet and roast 15-20 minutes. The squash should be fork tender when done. Remove from oven.
