I'm making wild rice and mushroom soup which is quite hearty. I'll be keeping it warm as I have family arriving over several hours. Trying to think of some creative salads to go with this? Kale keeps coming to mind....?
Roasted acorn squash is a hearty, relatively low-effort meal that's easily adapted to whatever ingredients you prefer (or happen to have on hand). The wild rice stuffing here is enhanced with sauteed onions, shallots, and celery, plus dried cranberries and toasted pecans for crunch. Replace the butter with vegetable oil and it's also vegan! Or go meaty and add crumbled sausage to the mix. Get the recipe.
