    Engicook1126's Note:

    This recipe is something I came up with. I'm in college and trying to eat somewhat healthy but also trying to use everything in my kitchen. I really like combining different tastes and temperatures: sour and sweet, hot and cold. This is really quite customizable but if you want to use dried figs I think you might need to rehydrate them because the recipe uses the fig's juices. (Tamarind paste has a strong taste so it might be good for using artificial sweeteners...but I haven't tried it) Hope you like it!

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 2

    Yield:

    squash ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut squash in half and clean out seeds.
    2. 2
      Cut figs into small chunks removing stems.
    3. 3
      Make tamarind sauce by mixing paste and sugar to taste. I personally like a sour taste along with the sweet squash so I added about 2 tablespoons paste to 1 tablespoon sugar. Keep in mind you only need enough to coat inside of squash.
    4. 4
      Coat inside of one half of squash with tamarind sauce. Put chopped figs into squash cavity.
    5. 5
      Roast squash in oven at 375 F until soft.
