Yield: 8 servings
|8 \N||Pumpkins, baby|
|⅓ cup||Vegetable stock or water|
|½ cup||Onion; finely chopped|
|2 larges||Garlic cloves; minced|
|½ teaspoon||Sage leaves, dried|
|1 cup||Bread crumbs, whole wheat|

Preheat oven to 350 degres. Slice off the top ½ inch of each pumpkin and scoop out the seeds. Bake pumpkins for 15 minutes.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat stock or water to simmering until onions are softened but not browned. Add garlic, sage, thyme, and bread crumbs. Cook, stirring, 1 minute, then remeove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients. Lightly fill pumpkins with stuffing. (Any remaining stuffing may be baked separately in a lightly oiled baking dish.)
Bake for 15 minutes, or until stuffing is lightly browned and heated through. Be careful not to overbake the pumpkins, because they will split. Serves 8.
