I love all things pumpkin. And thankfully, so do my kids. Mr. Meaty, not so much. Pumpkin pie is probably my least favorite pumpkiny thing. I know, weird, right? But I much prefer pumpkin flavor in other things. But, the flavors of pumpkin pie without the crust? Yum! And put that in quinoa!! Wowza. So I crafted this vegan lunch box creation with those two favorites: pumpkin pie flavor and quinoa. The kids went crazy for it. They think it's dessert but it's packed full of protein.
They like to have theirs topped with whipped coconut cream. Myself, I like to just mix in some coconut milk for creaminess. Yummy.
Wow. I love it. It's creamy and delicious (even before you add coconut milk) and the pumpkin pie flavor is fantastic. Plus it's like eating a big ole steak of vegan protein but it tastes like dessert.
