As much as I enjoy spending time in the kitchen, busy schedules usually mean that I need to choose meals that don’t take too much time to prepare. Most nights I’ve got hungry kids hovering as I rush to get dinner done. I often turn to time saving one pot meals that can be prepared quickly and served in a bowl. This helps me get dinner on the table faster and also makes clean up a lot easier.
Whether you are a strict vegetarian or someone who has occasional vegetarian meals by participating in Meatless Monday or simply reducing meat consumption, there is no need to do without flavor. I’m a vegetarian and my family eats meat. Sometimes I serve them meat on the side, but with protein rich meals like this pumpkin stew they are perfectly satisfied with a meat-free meal.
Cacique Crema Mexicana is something I recently discovered. I had incorrectly assumed that it was a sour cream, but it isn’t. This is a rich and thick table cream that doesn’t have any sourness to it at all. It blends in with this stew perfectly giving it a creamy texture and the delicious flavor of dairy.
The Vegetarian Pumpkin Stew was an instant favorite in my house. I love how easy it is to make something that is nutritious and satisfying.
