Pumpkin is a no-brainer for sweet dishes: there’s pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin doughnuts, pumpkin granola, pumpkin bread ... But like any other winter squash, pumpkin is also terrific in savory dishes. So to continue my pumpkin kick, why not combine leftover pumpkin puree with lentils and make a simple, hearty dish.

This recipe calls for red lentils, which break down more easily than other varieties. The result is a creamy, stew-like dish that is perfect on its own or served over quinoa or rice.

  • 1 cup red lentils

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom

Preparation

  4. When lentils are cooked, add pumpkin mixture, salt, and cilantro Fold all ingredients together and let simmer for 5-10 minutes.
