Stuffed Patty Pan Summer Squash

I started digging further into my box of fresh, organic produce from Full Circle Farms in Carnation.  They delivered this box of veggies and fruits right to my door step.  You can get ONE FREE BOX right now when you order 4 weeks from Full Circle Farms and use the Promo Code "WOLF"! Click on link at the bottom of this page.  

Ever seen a Patty Pan Summer Squash?  I have but had no idea what to do with it.  So I did a little research and came up with a fantastic recipe. I've indicated which items where in the Full Circle box.  Here's what I did. 

2 Patty Pan squash (Full Circle)
1 cup red kale (Full Circle) 
2 garlic cloves
1 banana pepper (Full Circle) 
1 cup chopped carrots
1/4 chopped onion
1 cup organic chicken stock 
olive oil 
salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

Cut a lid out of the top of each patty pan squash and scoop out the insides reserving the yummy squash for the stuffing.  Be careful not to pierce the bottom on the patty pan.  



Then, chop all of your veggies including the red kale and the garlic.  



Now saute all the veggies and red kale in a tablespoon of olive oil.  Make sure to salt and pepper the mixture.  Then, once the onions are translucent, add the garlic.  Then, add 1 cup of chicken stock and let the mixture reduce.  Also, massage olive oil on the inside and outside of the patty pan squash, and then sprinkle with salt and pepper. 



Stuff the mixture inside the patty pan squash.  Really pack it in there, so you can use all of that yummy stuffing!  



Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.  The patty pans should retain some of their texture. You do not want them to go mushy.  So they will be a little more firm than say a baked potato.  

Add your favorite steak on the grill, and enjoy this healthy meal with your family.  



Here is the final product, and it was delicious!  The patty pan squash is a little sweet, but the bitterness of the red kale helped to balance out the sweetness.  My boyfriend ate the entire squash, lid and ALL.  Home run!  

Order your first box of from Full Circle Farms and start treating your family to healthy and surprising dinners!  Plus, if you order now you get one box FREE!
