Pumpkin Vegetable Curry

With the fall weather arriving, it is finally time for soups, stews, and all things pumpkin. One of my favorite fall dishes is a good pumpkin curry. I have loved using this recipe because it can easily be adapted to your preferences. While I prefer a vegetable curry, you can easily add chicken, turkey, or other meats to this mix. Try this curry for a quick meal in 30 minutes or less. Add whatever vegetables you have collected from your harvest for a healthy, nutritious, and colorful meal.

Pumpkin Curry Ingredients:

  • 1 can Pumpkin Puree
  • 3 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • ¼-½ teaspoon Cayenne Pepper (add more or less depending on how hot you like)
  • ½-1 teaspoon Curry Powder
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 tablespoon Heavy Cream
  • 2 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 medium Onion chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 head of Cauliflower
  • Optional:
    • 2 Chicken Breasts cut into bite-size pieces
    • 1 small head of Broccoli cut into small florets
    • 1-2 sliced carrots

How to Cook Pumpkin Curry:

  1. If adding chicken, start by heating 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet at medium heat. Add bite-sized chicken pieces and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Set the chicken aside until your sauce is complete. Wipe the oil from the chicken out with a paper towel and return to heat.
  2. Saute your chopped onion in 1 tablespoon of oil until it starts becoming translucent, about 5 minutes. Add your garlic and cook for another minute.
