Pumpkin Maple-Glazed Penne with Roasted Fall Vegetables

This pasta dish is fall in a bowl! While there is quite a bit of peeling and chopping involved, the final result is so worth it. You can find prechopped butternut squash in most stores these days, so feel free to take advantage of that time-saver if you wish. The subtle sweetness of the sauce pairs beautifully with the roasted vegetables. If you have picky eaters who wont eat some of these veggies, feel free to leave them out and double up on the ones they like. This recipe comes to us from The Meatless Monday Family Cookbook by Jenn Sebestyen.

Gluten-free Grain-free Soy-free Recipe. Jump to Recipe Its that time of the year! No not Halloween, Its Diwali this weekend! All festivals and holidays seem to all come close to each other. One day I am planning bowl meals and the next I am thinking pumpkin, Indian sweets, desserts, lentil loafs. This Diwali I bring you 3 variations of Almond Halwa! Indian Halwa can range in texture from a crumble to a set jelly like to soft spoon fudge like. You can make this halwa into any of the textures you like! If you don’t want to use the spoon, roll it up into balls for amazing almond ladoos. Traditional Badam Halwa recipe often requires making a sugar syrup of certain consistency, then adding almonds(soaked and blended or ground) and cooking for a good number of minutes. This recipe has none of that! No standing around in the kitchen stirring stuff and no checking on the sugar to get the right syrup thread consistency. Just mix the sugar of choice in the hot water, Add flavors such as cardamom, saffron, rose water or cinnamon. Add in almond flour (blanched works great) and pressure cook. Done and done. With pressure cooking, the sugar, water mixture thickens and the almond flour rehydrates very quickly.  Did I mention, you don’t need any butter or oil as well! Ok lets make this. If you double the recipe(which you will want to), add a minute to the pressure cooking time.Continue reading: Vegan Almond Halwa – Instant Pot Badam Halwa (No Oil)The post Vegan Almond Halwa – Instant Pot Badam Halwa (No Oil) appeared first on Vegan Richa.

Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Caramel Bars

October 13 2019 Golubka Kitchen 

Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Caramel Bars You’d think we were trying to check off as many October-inspired ingredients as possible with today’s recipe: pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, etc. etc. And we kind of were! But we’ve been wanting to elaborate on the nut butter-based caramel trick that we’ve had up our sleeves ever since these colorful Twix bars. This was the perfect opportunity. The layers in these bars go as follows: a gluten-free and no-bake, chocolate ‘shortbread’ crust, the aforementioned pumpkin peanut butter caramel that’s studded with peanuts, and a neat blanket of chocolate to bring the whole thing together. We are in love. The combination of flavors is both familiar and surprising in these bars. They taste a little bit like Snickers, both the bar and the ice cream, and are of course similar to Reese’s (or Justin’s!). The pumpkin puree brings that little element of surprise to the table. It contributes both its creamy texture and undeniably autumnal flavor, and really makes this treat stand on its own. We hope you’ll give it a try. Wishing you a great Sunday! Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Caramel Bars   Print Serves: 16 square bars Ingredients for the crust 1/­­2 cup coconut butter/­­manna (not oil) 3/­­4 cup pumpkin puree (about half a can) 1/­­4 cup maple syrup pinch of sea salt 1/­­2 cup coconut flour 1/­­4 cup cacao powder for the pumpkin peanut butter caramel 3/­­4 cup smooth peanut butter 3/­­4 cup pumpkin puree (about half a can) 1/­­4 cup melted coconut oil 1/­­4 cup maple syrup 1 teaspoon cinnamon ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg generous pinch of sea salt 1 1/­­2 tablespoons miso paste (optional) 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil (optional) 1/­­4 cup toasted peanuts for the chocolate layer 3/­­4 cup dark dairy-free chocolate chips 3 tablespoons peanut butter 1 tablespoon coconut oil pinch of sea salt Instructions to make the crust Line a rimmed 8 x 8 dish (or a dish of a similar size) with parchment paper, extending the edges out of the dish for easier removal later. In a medium saucepan, melt the coconut butter, whisking it until smooth. Turn off the heat, add the pumpkin puree and maple syrup, mix to combine. Add the salt, coconut flour, and cacao, mix until smooth. Press the mixture into the parchment-lined dish, using the flat bottom of a measuring cup and/­­or your fingers, to form an even crust layer. to make the pumpkin peanut butter caramel In a food processor, combine the peanut butter, pumpkin puree, coconut oil, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, miso and sesame oil, if using. Process until smooth. Taste for salt and adjust if needed. Transfer the caramel to the dish with the crust and spread it into an even layer. Sprinkle the peanuts over the caramel and lightly press them in with the back of a spoon. Place the dish in the freezer for 30-40 minutes, letting the caramel set. to make the chocolate layer and assemble Melt the chocolate chips in a heat-proof bowl/­­saucepan on a double boiler or over very low heat, mixing constantly. Add the peanut butter, coconut oil and salt, mix until smooth. Spread the chocolate over the caramel layer. The chocolate might harden right away when you pour it over the chilled caramel, so work quickly, spreading it in an even layer. Place the dish in the freezer for at least an hour, letting all the layers set completely. Lift the bar out of the baking dish onto a cutting board, using the extended edges of the parchment. Cut it in half lengthwise and widthwise, then in half again, until you end up with 16 square bars. Keep the bars refrigerated and enjoy straight out of the refrigerator (they will melt at room temperature). The bars also freeze well in an air-tight container. 3.5.3226 The post Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Caramel Bars appeared first on Golubka Kitchen.

A layer of creamy mashed potatoes sits atop a rich filling of diced cremini or baby Portobello mushrooms, lentils, and vegetables.

Sprinkle with 1/­­2 Tablespoon of salt and turn the heat to high. Once the water starts to boil, partially cover with the lid, reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes or until the potatoes are soft. Put a colander over a heat-proof bowl and drain the potatoes, reserving the potato water. Return the potatoes to the saucepan and mash with a potato masher. Stir in the dry mustard, salt, pepper, and vegan butter. Add the potato water 1/­­2 cup at a time, mixing thoroughly with each addition, until the mashed potatoes have a slightly loose consistency (but not runny). Set aside. Filling Preheat oven to 400 F. In a large oven-proof skillet, heat olive oil until shimmering over medium heat. Add the onions and cook for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for a minute longer. Add the mushrooms, season all with salt & pepper, and cook for 2 more minutes. Stir the flour, parsley, thyme, and rosemary into the mushroom mixture until evenly coated for at least a minute to cook the flour. Add the wine and cooked lentils (I used Trader Joes). Cook until most of the wine is reduced and absorbed. Whisk the tomato sauce into the vegetable broth and add with the frozen vegetables and bay leaf, stirring to combine. Simmer for 5 minutes then remove from the heat. Discard the bay leaf. If youre feeding a large crowd, leave the mixture in the skillet. If youd rather split the recipe into 2 pie plates, now is the time to do it. Follow the recipe but only bake one of the pies and freeze the other for another day. Top the filling with the mashed potatoes. You can spoon it on and spread carefully as to not mix in the filling or gravy, or use a piping bag to get fancy. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are lightly browned. Remove the pie from the oven and let it rest for 15 minutes before serving.

Recipe | Pear & Sharp Cheddar Grilled Cheese Sandwich

September 23 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Simple fall lunches--this is what I am in desperate need of right now. I’ve gotten bored of just about every single one of my go-to lunchtime options, so when noon rolls around, I find myself standing in front of the pantry, contemplating what I can do with lentils or jasmine rice. And then I just give up and have a handful of potato chips and some olives. (This is the point where you mentally insert a sad trombone sound.) Even though I blog about cooking, I really don’t like making big elaborate lunches. When I made pasta for myself two weeks ago, that was kind of a huge deal to me. I made pasta--for lunch! So I’ve been seeking out some easy, seasonal lunch ideas and I just happened to find a good one on Panini Happy: Granola-Crusted Pear and Almond Butter Panini. Being lazy about lunches, I didn’t do the granola-crusting (and I know I’m missing out, I’m sure of it!), but the pear and almond butter on a sandwich was delicious! One of my favorite fall snacks is pear slices topped with a little bit of cheese, so I decided that this would make a good sandwich too. […]

Whether its a spooky soirée for you and your friends or a party for some little monsters , the focal point of the celebration (as with all parties) is the finger food -- minus the fingers, of course.

14 Restaurant Chains Offering Meatless Monday Options

October 21 2019 Meatless Monday 

14 Restaurant Chains Offering Meatless Monday OptionsFast-food and quick-service restaurants all across the country have recognized that customers want to incorporate more plant-based foods into their diet. And were thrilled! Today, it is easier than ever to join the Meatless Monday movement. Last week, McDonalds announced their plan to test their own version of a meatless burger in collaboration with Beyond Meat. They join a growing list of chains offering some sort of plant-based alternative to their menu. And while plant-based burgers are getting all of the media attention, many national chain restaurants are serving a variety of meatless veg-forward options that deliver that same fast-food flavor using grains, legumes and fresh vegetables. For all of you looking to go meatless on Monday , weve compiled a list of the most popular national chain restaurants that are offering plant-based options on their menus.   Bareburger    View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Bareburger (@bareburger) on Oct 3, 2019 at 3:10pm PDT Bareburger  has your favorite, whether its the Beyond Burger, the Impossible Burger or a veggie packed black bean or sweet potato burger, they serve them all. The restaurant chain also serves plant-based eggs, tempeh bacon and the Beyond Bratwurst. Its pretty much plant-based heaven here.   Burger King   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Burger King (@burgerking) on Aug 22, 2019 at 7:34am PDT When the news first dropped that Burger King  launched its very own Impossible-Burger-Based Whopper , it became the largest chain to embrace plant-based meat - over 7,000 locations nationwide. And, at least according to this video taste test , self-proclaimed carnivores are just as wild about the plant-based option. The Impossible Whopper is served with tomatoes, lettuce, mayo, ketchup, pickles, and onions on a sesame seed bun.   Cheesecake Factory   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by The Cheesecake Factory (@cheesecakefactory) on Jun 18, 2019 at 12:00pm PDT Who would have thought that the Cheesecake Factory would be a pioneer in meatless dining ? Well, the chain has quite the selection of non-meat alternatives -- vegan Cobb salad, avocado toast, roasted artichokes, falafel salad, super antioxidant salad, and their version of the Impossible Burger (note: this one is not vegan because of the cheese and brioche bun, the latter is typically made with egg and butter).   Chopt Creative Salad Co.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Chopt Creative Salad Co. (@choptsalad) on Mar 3, 2019 at 9:08am PST Although the chain is more-or-less confined to the East Coast, Chopt has wooed diners looking for a more diverse array of meatless options . They offer a long list of preconceived salad concepts, but they also give you the ability to customize your own. Choose from one of their classic salad and grain bowl combinations, or just let your inner chef guide lead the way.   Del Taco   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Del Taco (@deltaco) on Sep 2, 2019 at 11:03am PDT An early adopter of Beyond Meats plant-based crumbles , Del Taco offers a comprehensive list of meatless options that includes burritos, tacos, bowls and even a crunchy tostada. Looking for something a little more traditional? Try a bean burrito or black bean bowl.   Dunkin   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Dunkin (@dunkin) on Jul 24, 2019 at 11:21am PDT Besides their newly launched Beyond Meat breakfast sandwich , Dunkin’ offers a number of vegetarian options including a veggie egg white wrap and an egg and cheese sandwich on an English muffin.   Just Salad   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Just Salad (@justsalad) on Sep 12, 2019 at 8:00am PDT In September, Just Salad announced a partnership with Beyond Meat that brings Beyond Beef Meatballs to the menus of all 40 of their locations. But Just Salad is taking their meatless commitment one step further by removing all forms of beef from their menu . For Meatless Monday, try their Keto Zoodle Bowl, which contains Beyond Beef Meatballs, zucchini noodles, grape tomatoes, and roasted balsamic mushrooms.   Mellow Mushroom   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Mellow Mushroom (@mellowmushroom) on Dec 10, 2018 at 9:20am PST It’s plant-based pie paradise at Mellow Mushroom . Their meatless pizza options include dairy-free cheese, Follow Your Heart brand, and plant-based proteins, such as tofu and tempeh… plus every veggie topping you could possibly imagine. DIY your pie or opt for one of their curated specialty pizzas.   McDonalds   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by McDonalds Canada (@mcdonaldscanada) on Sep 26, 2019 at 3:29am PDT We bet you never thought youd see McDonalds on this list, but the Golden Arches have finally decided to try their hand at plant-based meat. McDonalds recently announced that they would be testing a P.L.T (plant, lettuce and tomato) in 28 locations in and around London, Ontario starting this week and lasting through the end of the year. Beyond Meat will be supplying the burger, but the sesame seed bun, tomato, lettuce, pickles, onions, mayo-style sauce, ketchup, mustard, and a slice of processed cheddar cheese will be classic McDonalds. As the worlds largest chain and one of the largest buyers of beef globally, the P.L.T. addition has enormous potential to positively impact the environment.   Panera Bread   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Panera Bread (@panerabread) on Oct 26, 2018 at 7:14am PDT Panera Bread has always been ahead of the pack when it comes to vegan and plant-based options, but theyve upped their game in recent years as the call for meatless options has gotten louder. Panera Bread has gone as far as launching an entire plant-based menu that lists a Greek Salad, a Modern Caprese Sandwich, a Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich, a Ten Vegetable Soup, and a variety of smoothies.   QDOBA   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by QDOBA (@qdoba) on May 28, 2019 at 9:07am PDT Following in the footsteps of other major quick-service chains, QDOBA has launched new vegan and fajita bowls in conjunction with Impossible Foods . But even without the plant-based beef, its easy to go meatless at Qdoba; try one of their tacos, burritos, or bowls with black or pinto beans, brown or cilantro-lime rice, and grilled veggies. And you can always add guac or salsa on the side.   Red Robin   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Red Robin Gourmet Burgers (@redrobinburgers) on Oct 7, 2019 at 10:34am PDT Red Robin has two options for meatless burger seekers. Their veggie burger is a mixtape of culinary inspiration -- cool avocado, Swiss cheese, roasted garlic aioli, and tomato bruschetta sit atop an ancient-grain veggie patty. If youre looking for a more traditional burger experience, you can swap in the Impossible patty on to any traditional Red Robin burger.   Subway   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Beyond Meat (@beyondmeat) on Sep 5, 2019 at 2:26pm PDT Until recently, Subways plant-based options were limited to a simple veggie sandwich and salad. But theyve seriously upped their veg game with the addition of the Beyond Meat Meatless-Meatball Marinara - which boasts 24g of protein for a 6 sub. Leave off the cheese and pack it with veggies for an even more substantial plant-based lunch or dinner.   TGI Fridays   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by TGI Fridays (@tgifridays) on Oct 1, 2018 at 10:00am PDT At participating TGI Fridays , the Beyond Burger comes grilled and topped with white cheddar, lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickles and Fridays sauce. Of course, you can also order it in place of other burgers. Check out Meatless Mondays visit to TGI Fridays  as they launched their Beyond Burger.   Are you looking for more meatless dining options? Check out our list of best plant-based burgers .   Meatless Monday is a global movement, followed by millions, with a simple message: one day a week, cut out meat for personal health and the health of the planet.

7 Squash Recipes You Absolutely Need to Make This Fall

October 14 2019 Meatless Monday 

7 Squash Recipes You Absolutely Need to Make This FallSquash come in many different shapes and sizes, with each possessing their own unique composition, color, taste, and nutritional profile. Some are ideal for savory sides, salads, and appetizers (squash blossoms, chayote, pumpkin); others are destined for a long, slow roast in the oven (acorn, butternut, delicata), while a select few can even replace our favorite carbohydrate -- noodles (spaghetti squash, zucchini). But what these recipes all share in common is that they are the perfect accompaniment or star of your Meatless Monday menu. So whether youre a loyal Meatless Monday fan or a new adopter, weve compiled a list of some undeniably dynamite seasonal squash recipes that will have you running/­­driving/­­rollerblading to the nearest farmers market.     Spicy Spaghetti Squash Ramen with Homemade Vegan Kombu Dashi Swapping spaghetti squash for ramen noodles adds extra veggies to this flavorful dish, which also features crispy pan-fried tofu, caramelized onions, broccoli, mushrooms and fresh ginger.     Pomegranate-Smashed Butternut Squash Need something festive for the changing of the seasons? Pairing the tart pop of pomegranate seeds with the inherent creaminess of butternut squash makes for a dish fit for any holiday table.     Butternut Squash and Apple Veggie Burgers Your grill may be closed for the season, but that doesnt mean you cant enjoy a delicious meatless burger! These baked burgers combine the sweet and savory flavors of autumn produce for a comforting seasonal dish.     Golden Pepper and Parmesan Zucchini Pasta No gluten is required to create this luscious bowl of pasta. Strips of zucchini replace traditional noodles, while diced golden peppers are used instead of the classic canned tomato. The result is a burst of light and bright flavors.     Roasted Delicata Squash Boats Delicata squash is just as its name suggests; its delicate exterior makes for a tender and creamy bite that is both rustic and decadent. These roasted delicata squash boats are the perfect vehicle for tender mushrooms and hearty stalks of kale.       Maple Date Pumpkin Porridge Coziness in a bowl. Hot cereal is simmered with cinnamon, dates, and maple syrup for a combination of flavors that just scream autumn. Pumpkins earthiness is a great match for the porridge grain farina. This breakfast will undoubtedly keep you full until lunch.     Butternut Squash Spinach Alfredo If you think youre looking at an ooey gooey cheese sauce, look again! That luscious coating is made from a combination of butternut squash, olive oil, onion, garlic, lemon juice, and a dash of dried sage.

Pumpkin Spice Energy Bites

September 30 2019 Oh My Veggies 

Yes, I am jumping on the pumpkin spice bandwagon. I couldn’t resist doing a pumpkin recipe (it is fall after all) and if you do a sweet pumpkin recipe, you have to add pumpkin pie spice, right? This kind of reminds me of the time I accidentally wore the school colors on spirit day when I was in high school and I had to spend the whole day explaining to everyone that no, I didn’t have school spirit, and that the navy blue t-shirt I was wearing was just a coincidence. “Hey Kiersten, do we have a quiz today in biology?” “I DIDN’T MEAN TO WEAR THIS SHIRT TODAY! IT WAS AN ACCIDENT! I HATE THIS SCHOOL!” That was the worst day. Sometimes I throw things together just to eat, not really intending to blog about it; this is one of those recipes. I bought an adorable little pie pumpkin and made puree with it for another recipe and had just a little bit left, so I added a little almond butter and maple syrup, folded in oats and raisins and pepitas, put in a little sprinkle-sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice, and rolled the mixture into balls. Random! But they […]

Cheesy Broccoli Mac Soup

September 26 2019 Robin Robertson's Global Vegan Kitchen 

Cheesy Broccoli Mac Soup By now, many of you have dug into your copy of Vegan Mac & Cheese and have begun making recipes from the book.  I hope you’ll share pics on social media so I can see what everyone is making! Today I’d like to share a recipe from Vegan Mac & Cheese from the final chapter of the book called “Fun with Mac & Cheese.”  This chapter is loaded with recipes for using up leftover mac & cheese (or you can whip up a quick batch just to use in the recipes if you don’t have leftovers.) Among the recipes in that chapter are: Cheesy Mac Mug, Mac UnCheese Omelet, Waffled Mac UnCheese, Mac UnCheese Balls (above), Cheesy Mac Muffins (below), Mac UnCheese Quesadillas, and Mac UnCheese Pizza.  There are even two dessert recipes: Sweet Noodle Kugel and Indian Vermicelli Pudding. The recipe I want to share is for Cheesy Broccoli Mac Soup.  It’s ideal for the fall weather that is bound to be just around the corner!  I hope you enjoy it. BTW… If you haven’t gotten your copy of Vegan Mac & Cheese, I hope you will.  And if you already have the book, I hope you’ll do me a HUGE favor and write a brief review of the book on Amazon.  It only takes a minute and will really help spread the word.  THANK YOU!!! Cheesy Broccoli Mac Soup Cheesy broccoli soup is a cold weather favorite in our house, so it was a no-brainer to try it made with leftover mac uncheese. The results were so good, this is now our go-to way to make it. We especially like that the broth isnt too thick (which it often is in cheesy soups). If you prefer a thicker broth, simply use less vegetable broth. To make this recipe without leftovers, I suggest using the quick and easy recipe for One-Pot Cheesy Mac from Vegan Mac & Cheese. - 1 tablespoon olive oil - 1 small yellow onion, minced - 2 garlic cloves, minced - 4 cups vegetable broth - 3 cups (weight varies) leftover or homemade mac uncheese - 11/­­2 cups Cheddary Sauce (recipe follows) - 1/­­2 cup plain unsweetened nondairy milk - 1/­­4 teaspoon smoked paprika - Salt, to taste - Ground black pepper, to taste - 2 cups steamed small broccoli florets - 1/­­4 cup Nut Parm (recipe follows) - In a large saucepan over medium heat, heat the olive oil. - Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. - Add the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan, and simmer for 15 minutes. - Stir in the mac uncheese and then add the Cheddary Sauce, stirring until thoroughly combined. - Add the milk and paprika and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until hot. - Stir in the broccoli and serve hot, sprinkled with the Nut Parm. Makes 4 to 6 servings   Cheddary Sauce - 1 cup unsalted raw cashews - 1 large russet potato, peeled and diced - 1 small carrot, chopped - 1/­­2 of a small yellow onion, chopped - 1 garlic clove, chopped - 1 teaspoon salt - 1/­­3 cup nutritional yeast, plus more as needed - 2 tablespoons vegan butter - 1 tablespoon rice vinegar - 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice - 11/­­2 teaspoons white miso paste - 1/­­2 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard - 1/­­2 teaspoon onion powder - 1/­­2 teaspoon smoked paprika - 1/­­4 teaspoon ground turmeric - 1 cup plain unsweetened nondairy milk, or water - In a saucepan, combine the cashews, potato, carrot, onion, garlic, and salt with enough water to cover. Place the pan over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to maintain a simmer and cook until the vegetables are soft, 10 to 15 minutes. - Using a slotted spoon, transfer the cooked vegetables and cashews to a high-speed blender, reserving the cooking water. - Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth and creamy, stopping to scrape down the sides, as needed. Add as much of the reserved cooking water as needed to achieve the consistency you prefer for the sauce. Taste and adjust the seasoning, as needed. The sauce is now ready to use. Makes about 4 cups   Nut Parm - 1 cup unsalted blanched almonds, or unsalted raw cashews - 1/­­3 cup nutritional yeast - 1/­­2 teaspoon salt - 1/­­4 teaspoon onion powder Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until the mixture has a fine crumbly texture, stopping to scrape down the sides, as needed. Transfer to a shaker jar or other container with a tight lid. Store in the refrigerator. Makes about 11/­­3 cups   The post Cheesy Broccoli Mac Soup appeared first on Robin Robertson.

Arrange your pumpkin bowls (if using), 1/­­2 of a spaghetti squash, 1/­­2 of a butternut squash and a sweet dumpling (or Hokkaido) halves on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with a little salt and black pepper, drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and roast for about 30 minutes. Take the butternut squash out of the oven after 20 minutes, let it cool a bit, then peel and chop it. Heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil in a medium-large heavy-bottomed pot and sauté finely chopped shallot, minced garlic, chopped sage and butternut squash chunks for a few minutes. Add turmeric, ground paprika and water and bring to a boil. Add the millet, reduce the heat, cover and cook for 12-15 minutes. Once the other pumpkins are ready, scrape the flesh of the spaghetti squash into strands using a fork. Scrap the sweet dumpling or whatever pumpkin you are using for the puree with a spoon and mash it with a fork. Add to the soup. Serve the soup in roasted pumpkin bowls (optional). Season with salt and black pepper to taste and garnish with pumpkin oil, fresh sage and pumpkin seeds. The post Pumpkin Soup with Millet appeared first on Meatless Monday.
