Tiny sugar pumpkins appeared at the Kimball Fruit Farm stall at the Arlington Farmers’ Market and the little cuties practically leaped into my basket. Arriving home, I snapped a picture of the pumpkins whole and then chopped their tops off. After scraping out the seeds, I filled them with a bit of Pineau de Charentes (Tawny Port would be lovely as well), some Zante currants and a sprinkle of ginger and allspice. Into a 400 degree oven they went, lids and all, for about 45 minutes.
When my petite pumpkins were done, I took them from the oven and dumped in about a tablespoon and a half of couscous and two tablespoons of water. I replaced the lids and the couscous steamed beautifully in about five minutes picked up the flavors roasted in the pumpkins. Just a quick fluff of the couscous and they were ready to serve. What a spooky fun treat this would make for a Halloween dinner or a great vegan side dish for a fall supper.
