I used acorn squash and an apple instead. I didn't have cardamom or shallot, so I omitted those. Very good!

I agree about the cardamom, too strong for me, use a lot less, maybe a little cinnamon instead. I have used pear and apple, orange sounds delicious!

The cardamom really overpowered this dish. I think finding another spice would work better. I didn't like the added spinach either. It might be nice with oranges. Maybe some pine nuts??? I Will make again.

Delicious! I used an acorn squash and less cardamom, as that is a strong taste for me. You can also substitute apple for the pear, either way, it is delicious!
