Sweet Pumpkin with Walnuts, and Thanksgiving

If you're looking for vegan Thanksgiving recipes, you only have to google those words to find a million and one great ideas. There are more out there every year.

A couple of good places to start this week are The Gentle's Chef's Holiday Recipes (a $2 download but worth it if you want some really well thought out plant-based versions of meat and dairy dishes) and the chooseveg Thanksgiving page (a collaboration of Mercy for Animals and Isa Chandra Moskowitz who founded the Post Punk Kitchen); or do a search for "Thanksgiving" on the PPK site for lots of wonderful dishes. The Thanksgiving list on oh she glows is very nice. And here's my post from last week about my friend Marina's Tofurkey cooking video.

My contribution for 2014 is this amazing simple, rich, sweet recipe from the Republic of Georgia, slightly adapted from Darra Goldstein's wonderful The Georgian Feast:

Sweet Pumpkin with Walnuts

1 large (29-oz) can pumpkin
1 c walnuts
1/3 c brown sugar

Put the walnuts in a blender or food processor and whir until finely ground. Add the sugar and pumpkin and mix well. Put into an oven-proof pan or casserole and bake at 350 for 20 minutes or so, until heated through.
