This gorgeous Gluten-Free Moroccan Millet-Stuffed Acorn Squash dish, perfect as an entrée or a side dish, showcases millet, an extremely nutritious whole grain. It is prettiest when made with smaller squash. For large gatherings, serve several squash arranged on a large platter, garnished with fresh parsley or cilantro sprigs. For meat-eaters, mix in browned sausage or cubed, cooked chicken.
With roughly 20 million Americans who are gluten free and 22 million who are “vegetarian-inclined,” multitudes of special-dieters are looking to sink their teeth into gluten-free, meatless food that’s delicious and satisfying. “Vegetarian-inclined” are those who never eat meat, those who eat meat sometimes and meat-eaters trying to consume more vegetables; the latter two are called “flexitarians.”
Popovers may not come to mind when thinking of gluten-free bread, but they are much like a dinner roll. They can be filled to make a gluten-free sandwich, and they satisfy a craving for something crispy. You can purchase popover pans in kitchen stores and discount stores for around $20. Muffin pans or custard cups are also an option, but their wide shape and short height won’t allow the popovers to rise as high. To guarantee success, keep all your ingredients at room temperature and heat the popover pan before filling it with batter.
