“I love this combo of beans and squash for its well-balanced flavors. It is also fast and inexpensive (YAY!). Plan ahead & precook dried garbanzos for even greater frugality. Any number of winter squash work well here. We are eating the last of our Long Island Cheese squash we stored over the winter in the garage. It is a large tasty squash that keeps well & works in savory as well as sweet dishes. This recipe came as an email from Bear on [gourmet-recipes-from-around-the-world]. Leftover roasted squash works well in this recipe. Serve with rice to provide complete protein and a nice side of kale for a healthy economical fast meal.”
