Ras El Hanout Pumpkin Rice

Ras El Hanout Pumpkin Rice

It’s December & my Halloween/Fall Decorative Pumpkins are starting to freeze outside. I baked them off & had a LOT of pumpkin to use up in a really yummy way. Not Pumpkin Pie – first of all we just ate a dozen of them at Thanksgiving & second of all we don’t use Pumpkin in our Pumpkin Pies, we use Crooked-Neck Squash!

So here’s my Kosher, Vegan, Vegetarian Pumpkin cheeseless sort-of Risotto for you! It’s rich, lush, & oh so good to eat with roasted veggies! Perfect for a hearty wintery rice bowl topped with all your leftovers!  Total Middle Eastern comfort in a bowl.
