Ingredients:

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1 1/2 cups pumpkin, canned or pre-cooked
  • 1 1/4 tsp sage
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts or pine nuts (optional)

Preparation:

If using fresh pumpkin, rather than canned, puree in a blender first until smooth.

In a medium-sized pot or large frying pan, sautee garlic and onion in olive oil 3-5 minutes. Reduce heat to low, and add vegetable broth, soy milk, pumpkin and sage. Stir gently to combine ingredients.

Allow to simmer until flavors are well combined, about 8-10 minutes. Add salt, pepper and walnuts or pine nuts, stirring to combine, then remove from heat.

Serve over cooked pasta and enjoy!

Needs a little something...but a delight!, Guest Katherine

I made this recipe recently for a work party where participants have varying allergies, food preferences and milk intolerances...it was the perfect combination of delicious fall ingredients with a vegan twist! I did have to add quite a bit more salt than the recipe calls for, and I made the pasta with bow-tie noodles (even though it didn't specify). The recipe also works better if made the night before. I plan to try it with shallots and leeks (as mentioned in another review!) the next time!
