  • 1 cup dried Cannellini Beans
  • 1 celery stalk, chopped
  • 1/2 carrot, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 1/2 tbsps salt
  • 1 kabocha squash (2.5 lbs)
  • 5 tbsps olive oil
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tbsps lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp italian parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp toasted pumpkin seeds

Soak dried Cannelli beans in a bowl for 8 hours. Drain the beans and place in a pot with 4 cups water, celery, carrot, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil and then turn down to a low simmer. Cook beans until tender and creamy, about 2-3 hours, adding salt to taste if needed. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 400°. Cut the squash into 3/4” slices and remove seeds. Toss squash with 4 tbsp olive oil, cumin, cayenne, lemon zest, parsley, and salt.

Heat a baking sheet in the oven for 10 minutes, once hot, pour in the squash mixture and roast for 5 minutes. Lower your oven heat to 350°, add red onion and garlic, and roast for another 7 minutes, or until caramelized. Remove from oven, let cool, and toss with vinegar, 1 tbsp olive oil, and salt to taste.

Spoon beans onto squash, garnish with pumpkin seeds, and serve!
