Vegetarian Dinner Recipe
It is down to a chilly 78° here in California, which means time for some fall recipes! Once the temperature drops about five more degrees I can finally get started on my fall baking . . . WooHoo!
I’ve used pumpkin puree in many recipes but I realized that I had never used fresh pumpkin in any of my meals. Probably because I dislike the entire process of cleaning pumpkins. I’m not a big fan of carving pumpkins just for that reason. I hate scooping and scraping out all of the pumpkin seeds and goop!
The Very Vegetarian Challenge has some rules that I had to follow:
Yields 2 servings.
Uses 10-12 ingredients.
Include vegetables, starch/grain and a protein.
Includes seasonal ingredients.
Only require 5-6 easy steps to follow.
No blenders, food processors or dutch ovens allowed.
Recipes are ready within 30 minutes, start to finish (including chopping).
I have to admit, the 30 minute time limit was a hard one for me. I’m more of a leisurely cook. You will never catch me on one of those frantic cooking competition shows, that is for sure!
Use the OXO Handheld Mandoline on setting 1 to slice the celery extra thin.
Clean the pumpkin with the large OXO Fruit Scoop. I suggest using both hands to do this, but I needed my other hand to take the photo.
Sauté the ingredients.
Use the OXO 9″ Whisk to mix the creamy gorgonzola dressing.
