  • In a small bowl, combine wild rice blend, pumpkin seeds or pine nuts, minced garlic, tomato paste, salt, pepper, and spices; stir until well-mixed.
  • Stuff rice mixture into each squash half.
  • Slowly pour about 1/2 cup vegetable broth into each squash cavity until full (don't let stuffing overflow).
  • Pour any remaining broth around squash.
  • Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
  • Just prior to serving, sprinkle with crumbled cheese.
