1. Stuffed squash with bulgur
Split squash in half along its length. Scoop the flesh out, chop it, and set it aside. Place the squash on a baking sheet with the cut side facing up. Cook the chopped-up flesh with almonds, onion, salt, and pepper in a little olive oil.
Add bulgur wheat and water. Cook for 10 minutes, turn the heat off and add some feta cheese. Stuff the squash with the bulgur mixture and bake for a half-hour. Serve with wedges of lemon.
