A winter speciality of pumpkin with spinach (Kumro Palak) is a simple bengali vegetarian dish. It is not highly spiced and the taste of pumkin is the key in the dish. Out here I used acorn squash instead because the taste of acorn squash I find very similar to the taste of Pumpkin back home in India.
The temperature is shooting high, the boots and sweaters are barely needed and it’s so beautifully sunny all the time. We are in spring! The day-light-saving, sun kissed dinning hours and the gorgeous cherry blossoms highlighting the streets, I love it all. Looks like finally the rain stopped and sunny days are here to stay. And, so with the first signs of spring, I bring you Fennel Roasted Acorn Squash with Quinoa. It’s a spring like salad with a hint of flavor from winter.
