Easy Pumpkin Curry Recipe I never would have considered making a pumpkin curry to be "easy" until I tried it. I really went into this dish expecting not to like it!

When I became a vegetarian at 16 and vegan thereafter, there wasn’t the variety of plant-based protein foods readily available as there are these days, nor was I educated about alternatives to meat back then.

We were spoiled as Chefs Matty Matheson and Matthew DeMille sat us in the kitchen and encouraged us to eat a large percentage of the menu.
