Dinner in a Pumpkin
1 small/medium pumpkin, the size of a soccer ball, top cut open and cleaned out
1 1/2 lbs of ground turkey
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1 small can water chestnuts
1 cup brown rice, cooked
1 can low-fat Cream-of-Chicken soup
1 can sliced mushrooms
2-3 T. soy sauce
1 T. brown sugar
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Start cooking your brown rice right away as it takes about 30-40 minutes to cook. Meanwhile, wash your pumpkin, and cut a hole on the top like you were going to carve a pumpkin. Clean it out well, seeds and all. Place it on a cookie sheet with a lip on it lined with tin-foil. Spray your pumpkin with cooking spray so it will have a shiny finish after it cooks. Set aside.
Brown the ground turkey with the onions and green peppers. Cook until no longer pink. Add the soup, soy sauce, brown sugar, water chestnuts, mushrooms, and cooked rice. Mix all together, and stuff the empty pumpkin with the meat mixture.
Cook at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours, or until the pumpkin is soft. When serving, scrape the sides of the pumpkin and serve along with the meal.
This is fun, delicious, and beautiful! Your family will love it!
