Meatless Monday: Vegan Pumpkin Coconut Curry Recipe


Since I started October with a pumpkin recipe I thought it was quite fitting to end the last Monday of October with a pumpkin recipe as well. 

Unlike the sweet and dessert like Pumpkin Almond Superseed Butter that I kicked off the month with, today’s recipe is of the savory variety.

I was actually inspired to make this Pumpkin Coconut Curry after ordering a pumpkin curry dish from a local Thai restaurant.  I’ll be honest, usually when I order Thai, I don’t typically order curry dishes but they had featured their pumpkin curry as being a popular seasonal dish and I couldn’t resist giving it a try. 
 
When it finally arrived it was served as more of a soup and less of a plated dish but the flavors were still amazing enough to make me want to recreate it. 
 
My version of it is a little thicker and more plate worthy not to mention that the addition of basil and toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds) took this curry creation to the next level. I did keep the concept of incorporating butternut squash for some meatiness and red pepper for flavor and color!
