Autumn is a time for comfort. As we put to bed our flip flops for another year and slowly say goodbye to the sun, it’s time to batten down the hatches and cook cozy recipes like this Vegan Pumpkin Cauliflower Rice Curry.
Autumn is my favourite season for cooking. The beautiful sweet pumpkins in all their autumnal colours first make an appearance at the farmer’s markets and heady greens with nourishing spices begin to line our soup bowls. It’s time to jump on all the excitement of what autumn brings, dig out your stock pot and get those tray bakes and roasts sizzling in the oven.
I love that this Vegan Pumpkin Cauliflower Curry is a bit different. It’s all the wonderful flavours of a good vegan curry but roasted in a one pot tray bake until the pumpkin is delicately sweet, naturally caramelised and the cauliflower rice soaks up all the curry sauce. It’s super easy and yet bursting with flavour. I think this is the start of a beautiful new way of cooking. Stay tuned for more curry bakes coming your way this winter.
This Vegan Pumpkin Cauliflower Rice Curry has pretty much all the healing diets covered. It’s keto, paleo, Gaps, low-carb, Whole3o and vegan friendly. For an AIP version you could leave out the tomatoes, paprika and chilli and add a little more of the other spices and another tablespoon of coconut oil for flavour.
If you love getting creative with veggies and are looking for an easy way to get more in your diet, this one’s definitely worth trying.
