Vegan Pumpkin Curry



Day Six of Pumpkin Week, finally brings this delicious fall food blog series to a close. I have had so much fun cooking up all these yummy pumpkin dishes! Thank you for being a part of it!

It is amazing to recognize the incredible variety one ingredient can hold. If time, energy, and money allowed, I could have easily kept rolling with this pumpkin series for weeks, because there are so many pumpkin recipes out there! If this pumpkin series tickled your fancy, then I highly suggest doing some more research, because pumpkin is incredibly versatile.

Despite an end to this pumpkin series, this fall will continue to bring a wide variety of delicious and seasonal vegetarian dishes coming your way!

I hope you stay tuned and come back often. Yummy things are happening in this little rented kitchen, and I love sharing them with you all!

Happy Fall, and eat up!
