Method

Preheat the oven to 400°F. 

Process the bread in a blender or food processor to make fine crumbs (you should have about 3/4 cup). Set aside.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. 

Add onion, celery, garlic and tofu, and cook until onion is transparent, 4 to 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in the reserved crumbs, brown rice, raisins, nuts, sesame seeds and broth. 

Add salt, pepper and sage and stir well.

Place squash in a 7x11-inch baking dish. (You may have to cut a thin slice off the bottom of the squash so it will sit up straight in the dish.) 

Fill squash halves with the tofu mixture, then cover with foil and bake until squash is tender when pierced with the tip of a knife, 1 to 1 1/4 hours.
