    Sassy Syrah's Note:

    I made this tonight, and it is perfect autumn fare. I am wondering if any of you can convince your kiddies to eat them on Halloween, as it seems like you could adapt it for that. Perhaps you could pretend that the beans were rats kidneys or something equally disgusting. You could easily use chickpeas or any other white beans if you wanted. This is based on a recipe I found in Super Food Ideas, an Australian publication.

      This is a great vegetable dish with 5 star presentation. I made this as a side for a fall get together with friends. My small pumpkins were on the larger scale, so I used one half of a pumpkin per serving and as a result, my pumpkins did not have lids. I served these along side a bison meat loaf. I made a couple of minor changes. I used chicken stock instead of vegetable stock and pecans instead of the walnuts. The presentation is really quite lovely. These would make a great vegetarian main. Your guests will be singing your praises. Thanks for posting this Sassy.
