Something a little different

Top Review by kelly.crout

I made this recipe a couple of weeks ago when I was experimenting with fresh pumpkin. I was not sure how it would be with chunks of pumpkin but I have to say it was amazing! It was bursting with flavor and the flavors went well. I did use coconut milk in place of milk and I think I may have added some fresh ground ginger and some cilantro on top with cheddar.
