About this pumpkin sauce vegan

By: Gian Sibilia

It’s pumpkin time. Let’s cook great recipes and enjoy the variety of these great vegetables. How about a delicious pumpkin pasta? Unbelievably delicious can be created from just a few ingredients.


Pumpkin puree


  • 1 Hokkaido Pumpkin
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • 40g Cashews
  • 1 tbsp salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp dried herbs 
  • 200g pasta of choice
  • 150ml pasta water or vegetable broth


First of all, let’s take care of the pumpkin puree. It’s very easy with the Hokkaido pumpkin. The pumpkin is quartered, the seeds removed and then baked with the shell. For the taste I add onions, cashew nuts, garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil. The whole thing should be baked in the oven at 160 degrees for about 40 minutes. If you want neutral pumpkin puree, which can also be used for sweet dishes, I recommend that you just bake the pumpkin. You can also clean the seeds of the pumpkin, sprinkle with salt and olive oil and roast them in the oven until crispy.
