Ingredients

  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 8 oz. Yukon gold potatoes, cut into ½-inch pieces
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, halved
  • 1¼ cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 15-oz. can no-salt-added cannellini (white kidney) beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage
  • ½ to ¾ cup unsweetened plant milk, such as almond, soy, cashew, or rice
  • Sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 12 oz. dried whole wheat linguine
  • 8 oz. thick asparagus spears, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 3 tablespoons raw unsalted cashews, toasted and finely ground
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • ⅛ teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. In a medium saucepan combine cauliflower, potatoes, onion, garlic, and broth. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 20 to 25 minutes or until very tender. Cool slightly (do not drain). Transfer mixture, in batches if needed, to a blender or food processor. Add beans, pumpkin, and sage. Cover and blend or process until smooth and creamy, adding as much of the milk as needed to reach desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, cook linguine according to package directions, adding asparagus and carrots the last 2 minutes. Drain and return to pot. Stir in pumpkin mixture.
  3. Spread mixture into a 3-qt. baking dish. Bake, covered, 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbly.
  4. In a small bowl combine cashews, yeast, and garlic powder. Sprinkle over linguine mixture. If desired, top with additional sage.

Wow! This was phenomenal. The fresh sage really adds a lot. The whole family loved it. I used quinoa fusilli in lieu of linguini. Will be making again! Love it.

Yuck! Threw it all out in the trash. Even my husband wouldn’t stomach it. I hate wasting food. Don’t make this recipe. Not sure how it has a good review.

I made this because because another member suggested it. It was easy and fun to make. I used brown rice fusilli noodles instead of linguini. And omitted the nutritional yeast. I absolutely love it. Total comfort food. I’ll be making this again and again.
