  • In a large saucepan heat a drizzle of olive oil. Add the onion and cook until soft. Add the garlic and kale and cook until the kale is just tender.
  • Pour in the Denny Creamed Mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes. Switch the heat off and add in the cooked rice and herbs. Mix. Taste to adjust seasoning.
  • Remove the butternuts from the oven and scoop out some of the flesh to make room for the stuffing.
  • Divide the stuffing between all the butternut halves, filling them generously. Scatter the tops with mozzarella and then Parmesan.
  • Return to the oven and turn the grill up to max. Cook for 5-10 minutes until the cheese has melted and is golden brown.
  • Serve as a delicious vegetarian main course or a side to any family feast.
