Pumpkin Curry

Pumpkin Curry
  • 2 lbs pumpkin
  • 14oz (1 package) Firm tofu, optional

  • 2" fresh galangal (peeled and thinly sliced), or 2 T galangal powder (or ½ equivalent ginger)

We used a marina de chiogga pumpkin, but any firm, yellow-flesh, slightly sweet/nutty pumpkin will do.

Green Sauce

Green Sauce

This sauce was AWESOME, and I made it all by myself.

Makes about 1 cup:
2 cups unpacked parsley
1 cup unpacked mint
1 cup unpacked basil
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup white wine vinegar or rice vinegar
Juice of 1 lemon

Blend all ingredients, preferably with an immersion blender, until smooth.
If needed, add more oil (and/or vinegar, to taste) to help blend.
Alternatively, double (or triple!) the ingredients to make it easier to blend in a conventional blender. Trust me, you'll eat it all.
