Pumpkin Edamame & Chick Pea Concoction!


Yes – I know we have left summer behind and are now almost 5 days into fall…

Some people say I am in denial….but….

I know fall has so much going for it {the pumpkin, the squash, the boots, the scarves, the stews, the soups….the list seems to never end}

But, I so so miss the hot and humid days of summer!

I miss going for a run and looking like I went thru a car wash (but not smelling like it)!

I miss eating copious amounts of KEMPS moose tracks fro yo and not having to chase it down with an extra steamy cuppa coffee!

I miss daylight at 9pm

Excuse me while I go and drown my tears in a bowl of this…


Yup – now am feeling a little better…yup…pumpkin makes me miss summer a teensy bit less

While this edamame, chick pea and pumpkin concoction was cooking, my salivary glands begin hurting from over production…

I barely managed to snap a few clicks before we consumed this in record time (and ours is a house where chocolate anything is the only thing that has record consumption numbers )


The mixture of the pumpkin and cumin was heavenly – it resulted in …slurrrp…slurrp… bowls that didn’t really need to be washed!!!

I am just kidding…I really would not put freshly licked bowls back on the shelves…seriously!


This is a quick and extremely healthy dinner – we had planned on eating it with pita bread, but somehow never really got around to the pitas at all.

Thanks so much for reading…now I have to know…

Do you miss summer too?

Hope yall have a wonderful fall weekend!

I basically lived in pumpkins last two weeks...need to get some more winter squashes as they are so nutritious and delicious. Love the colour and flavour combo of this comforting and soul satisfying dish!

Thank you Angie - I can never get enough of pumpkins and winter squashes! The only problem I have is in cutting them - any tips/tricks?
