Recipe Ingredients for Stuffed Squash with Bulgur and Farmer Cheese

32 oz summer squash
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup sliced almonds
3/4 cup bulgur wheat, dry
8 ounces farmer cheese

Recipe Directions for Stuffed Squash with Bulgur and Farmer Cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Halve each squash lengthwise; slice off a sliver of skin from each half so they sit flat. Scoop out flesh with a small spoon, leaving a 1/4-inch border; chop finely, and reserve. Place squash halves on a rimmed baking sheet, skin sides down; set aside.

  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add reserved chopped squash, onion, almonds, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until mixture is dry, 5 to 7 minutes.

  3. Add bulgur and 2 cups water; simmer over medium heat until liquid is absorbed, 10 to 12 minutes (bulgur should still be slightly crunchy). Remove from heat; stir in crumbled farmer cheese.

  4. Mound bulgur mixture in reserved squash halves. Bake until squash is tender, 25 to 30 minutes.
