  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 pound Delicata squash – peeled, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch cubes
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup long-grain brown rice
  • 2 tablespoons white wine
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley


Heat oil in a 6-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and cook until soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in garlic and oregano and cook for 1 minute. Add squash, season with salt and pepper, and cook for an additional 5 minutes.

Add rice, stirring often, and cook until it’s toasted and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Stir in white wine and cook until absorbed. Add stock and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender, 30 to 40 minutes.

Fold in basil and parsley just before serving.
