For the cultured cashew cream (optional):

  • 4 cups raw cashews
  • 7 to 7 1/2 cups filtered or dechlorinated water
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 6 probiotics capsules, 10 billion CFU
  • 1/2 teaspoon agave nectar

For the squash:

For the filling & garnish:

  • 4-6 teaspoons Salted Miyoko's European Style Cultured Vegan Butter
  • 1 small bunch of rapini
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 shallot bulb
  • 1/4 cup sprouted wild rice
  • 2 tablespoons sprouted pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tablespoons Vadouvan
  • Sprinkle of sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar or cider
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Seeds of 1 small pomegranate (about 3/4 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill


Cultured cashew cream (optional)

  • Boil or soak 4 cups of cashews in 6 cups of filtered water for at least 8 hours.
  • Blend the soaked cashews, 1-½ cups of filtered water, sea salt, and agave nectar until smooth.
  • Transfer the mixture to a sterilized glass jar without any metal. Stir in the probiotic powder from the capsules using a sterilized plastic or wooden spoon.
  • Cover the jar with cheesecloth and let the mixture ferment at room temperature for at least 8 hours.
  • Season as desired with salt, herbs, and/or spices. Any leftover cream can be stored in the refrigerator for a week.

Roast the squash:

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Slice off the ends of the squash, then cut in half lengthwise.
  • Scoop the seeds out using a spoon.
  • Place about 1-2 tbsp. of butter in the center of each squash half and sprinkle with sea salt.
  • Transfer the squash halves to a wide and shallow oven-safe saucepan or ceramic casserole dish.
  • Pour about ¼ cup of water in the bottom of the pan or dish and cover with a lid.
  • Place the pan or dish in the oven and roast at 375°F for 45 minutes.

Prepare the filling:

  • While the squash is roasting in the oven, cut the rapini to bite-size pieces, thinly slice the garlic clove, and dice the shallot.
  • After the squash has finished roasting, take the pan or dish out of the oven, set the squash halves aside on a plate or tray, and dump out any excess water.
  • Place the same pan on the stove and bring to medium-high heat (if you used a casserole dish for roasting the squash, this will be your first time using a saucepan).
  • Put about 2 tbsp. of butter in the saucepan before putting the squash halves in face-down.
  • Allow the edges of the squash halves to caramelize in the pan for a couple minutes, adding more butter as needed.
  • Remove the squash halves from the pan and set them aside, covering with foil or a lid to keep them warm.
  • Put 2 more tbsp. of butter to the pan and heat until frothy.
  • Add the shallots and garlic and continue cooking until the butter starts to brown.
  • Add the rapini, vadouvan, sprouted wild rice, sea salt, and about 1 tbsp. of pumpkin seeds.
  • Saute for about a minute or until the rapini has cooked down. Once the rapini is almost done sauteing, pour in the sherry vinegar, maple syrup, and about 1 tbsp. of pomegranate seeds before turning the burner off.

Stuff the squash:

  • Plate your squash halves facing up and spread an even layer of cashew cream on the inside.
  • Scoop your desired amount of filling in each half and top with pomegranate seeds, pumpkin seeds, and fresh dill to taste. Serve and enjoy!
