This week on The Sporkful podcast I discuss the Veggieducken, a dish I created for my Cooking Channel web series Good To Know so that vegetarians too would have a large, time-consuming, centerpiece-worthy dish to prepare at the holidays. This video gets into more detail on the construction process, and shows you how to make this veggiedream a reality.
In short it's sweet potatoes stuffed inside leeks stuffed inside a banana squash, with vegetarian stuffing between each layer. Just like the turducken, except completely different.
One tip to add to the video -- If you can't find a banana squash, use two butternut squashes. Once you slice them up you can put them both on one big platter. The full recipe is here.
Here are some photos of the process:
