Vegan MoFo: Munchkin(pumpkin)Land

I was in the supermarket the other day and saw these munchkin pumpkins. They were too cute to ignore (and only £1 each), so I bought one. I bought this one cuz it was pretty, but they did have regular orange ones too.



I decided to bake it then stuff it. So that's what I did, 200C for about 35 minutes and it was soft. I carefully cut off the top and scooped out the flesh, discarding the seeds. I mixed the pumpkin flesh with a mixture of sauteed veg, brown rice, crumbled steamed tempeh and asian inspired flavours like soy sauce, lime juice, chilli and fresh coriander leaves. The stuffing made enough for 2 portions, so the rest is still in the fridge.

It was nice but nothing special so I didn't bother with the recipe here, you could probably do better, and so could I if I tried again.

It was pretty though.

    That looks worthy of a super hero that does. Even one who wears their underpants over the top of tights.
