🔪Prep Time: 15 mins
👩🍳Cook Time: 10 mins
7 oz gluten-free spaghetti
1 large onion, chopped
1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
2 cups pumpkin, peeled and chopped (see notes for instructions on using canned pumpkin)
2/3 cup plantbased milk
1 tbsp tamari
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp onion salt
2 cups kale, de-stemmed and chopped
1Start by cooking your pasta according to packaging instructions until al dente. Drain and rinse.
2Add the onion and carrot to a saucepan filled with water and boil for 10-15 minutes, until softened. If boiling your pumpkin, add it in together with the other vegetables. (See notes on instructions for roasting the pumpkin).
3Drain the vegetables and transfer them to a blender or food processor. Add the plant-based milk, tamari, nutritional yeast, cumin and onion salt. Blend until as smooth as possible.
4Pour the sauce into a frying pan and add the kale. Stir for around 2 minutes to heat up, and then stir in the pasta, cooking for a further 3-4 minutes until the sauce thickens.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
