Author Notes

I made this a few days ago in about half an hour and in one pot. Therefore this recipe may be my new kitchen god. It’s creamy, satisfying AND vegan, plus it works well as both a main or a side dish. Aaaaaand the leftovers are great for lunch. If you don’t eat it for breakfast, that is.

  • Serves 4
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1/2 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 head of cauliflower, riced in a food processor or grated
  • 1/2 cup stock of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon tomato paste
  • 1 3/4 cups pumpkin puree (1 can)
  • 2/3 cup coconut milk (full fat works best)

  • Teaspoon black pepper, to taste (1/4 - 1/2 tsp)
