      I was very excited to try this dish after I saw it in Cooking Light, and I was surprised that there wasn't a more pronounced flavor. I think that a flavor other than sage might work better in this dish, maybe some Moroccan spices like cinnamon, cardamom and ginger. Overall, it was a nice side dish for fall when pumpkin and sweet potato are in season.

      This is a wonderfully seasoned dish. My fresh pumpkin became another sweet potato (long story). This was served with pork ribs and Garlic Green Beans.

      This is more than good, it is a savory bite of fall with a wonderful melange of flavors and textures. Loved the mix of carmelized potatoes and squash with the nuttiness of the brown rice. I used calabazza squash instead of pumpkin and otherwise followed the recipe. Easy to pull together and worthy of a holiday or company meal.
