Place squash halves in a baking dish, cut side up, and add ¼ cup water to bottom of pan. Sprinkle squash with pinch each of salt and pepper the drizzle with walnut oil. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes.
Bring the chicken stock and water to a boil with half of seasonings. Add buckwheat, cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until all liquid is absorbed, about 20-25 minutes. Stir in the remaining seasonings, walnuts, and cranberries.
After the squash has cooked for 45 minutes, remove from oven and stuff halves with the buckwheat, re-cover with the foil, and continue to bake for another 35-45 minutes or until the squash is tender. Remove foil for last 5-10 minutes of baking to make a crispier crust on the buckwheat.
