Acorn Squash Quiches

I’m always trying to think of  creative ways to make crustless (i.e. gluten-free) quiches, and to that end, made a pretty delicious potato-crusted version a few months ago—I mean, who wouldn’t want a quiche wrapped in crispy potatoes?!   Then, while working on some squash recipes this fall, I noticed that, when cut open and seeds removed, the hollow part of an acorn squash seemed to be exactly the right size to fit an egg. Oohhh, I thought, that’s fun! I had to experiment with the baking method a bit—pre-baking the squash before adding eggs seemed like the way to go, but the egg actually needs just as much time to bake as the squash.

Curried Butternut Squash Lasagna Layers

I really like the idea of making a lasagna, but the truth is, if I did, I’d never eat it all. It’s just too much food. So, this recipe is kind of like a vegan lasagna that you can just layer up ingredients onto two plates, rather than have fill up an entire lasagna dish that could amount to eight servings. The curry is great with the squash—it creates a very warm, fall flavor—and the tofu and cashews blended with garlic make for a very creamy, ricotta-like sauce. Feel free to skip the noodles if you want something a little lighter, but I like the heartiness they add—perfect for nights when I’m a little on the ravenous side. Happy cooking!
