Brown serves this satisfying vegetarian stew in roasted, seeded acorn squash halves. This dish provides nearly a day's allowance of protein, most of it from seitan, also known as wheat gluten. Chipotle chile powder lends wonderful smoky flavor. Hominy is a traditional Native American ingredient.

How to Make It

Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion and next 4 ingredients (through garlic) to pan; sauté 5 minutes. Add broth and remaining ingredients to pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

Ehhh... This dish was easy, filling, healthy, and reheats well. I may make it again. However, when it comes down to it, the flavor isn't anything special. It tastes like a bunch of veggies tossed with a can of tomatoes and a very mild flavor of chili powder in the background. Smoky? Uhh, no, not at all. It's not a bad recipe, but it's also nothing special whatsoever.
