Recipe by Chef PotPie

The picture of this in Cooking Light made my mouth water. I'm in the mood for squash of all kinds! This sounds wonderful as a side to just about any meat I can think of. Welcome, Autumn!

Yummo!! This was just so tasty!! I had to use white rice as that is what I had on hand (next time I'll do brown) so I reduced the stock to 2 cups and reduced the cooking time accordingly. Thanks for sharing! :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Arrange pumpkin and sweet potato in an even layer on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 35 minutes or until tender and just until vegetables begin to brown, stirring after 18 minutes. Remove from oven, and set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery, and garlic to pan; sauté 3 minutes or until onion is tender. Add broth and remaining ingredients to onion mixture, stirring to combine; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 50 minutes or until rice is done and liquid is mostly absorbed. Remove from heat; discard bay leaf. Add pumpkin mixture; stir gently to combine.
