Wild Rice with Kabocha Squash and Sage Butter

This is one of my top five recipes, period. It’s the perfect fall meal.

To save time, make the rice and butter while the squash is cooking. Yams may also be used in place of the kabocha.

Wild Rice with Kabocha Squash and Sage Butter

This Recipe is :

High FiberVegan

Serves

4 servings

Cook Time

90

Ingredients

  • 1 pound kabocha squash (about 1⁄2 medium squash)
  • 3 tbsp melted coconut oil + 1 tbsp, divided
  • 1⁄2 cup wild rice
  • 1⁄2 cup brown rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 1⁄2 tbsp chopped fresh sage, packed
  • 1 tbsp minced shallots
  • 1⁄2 tsp salt

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Cut the squash in half, then scoop out and discard the seeds.
  2. Use 1 tbsp coconut oil to lightly brush the cut areas of the squash, and place cut side down on a baking sheet. Bake for 40–45 minutes or until soft when pierced with a fork.
  3. When cool enough to handle, cut into 1-inch chunks (skin may be left on for extra flavor and nutrition or disposed of). Keep warm.
  4. To make the rice, combine the rices and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and let simmer, covered, until done.
  5. Meanwhile, in a food processor, blend 3 tbsp coconut oil, sage, shallots, and salt until smooth.
  6. In a large pan, heat the sage butter mixture over medium-low heat for 1 minute.
  7. Add the rice and toss to combine, and cook for 1 minute longer while stirring constantly. Remove from heat and carefully fold in the squash.

Where did this recipe go? I bookmarked this page a couple weeks ago but it now appears blank to me no matter where I open it -- on my phone and desktop, on both IE and Chrome browsers. Only the title and picture show up at the top, but no recipe... and I really wanted to make it!! Can anyone else see it? I'm trying to figure out if the problem is on my end. (Other OGP recipes open normally.)
