Recipe by BellaBambina
I don't remember where I found the original recipe for this now, but I've changed it quite a bit to suit the flavours I like and I absolutely love it. I make it often and enjoy it with a nice green salad and tangy apple cider vinegar salad dressing. Enjoy!

Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease a small to medium sized baking dish with olive oil spray (I used a glass dish which gives great results).
- Fry sliced leek, crushed garlic and ginger in olive oil over medium heat.
- Add sliced mushrooms and fry until soft.
- Add cooked rice, tamari (to your taste - I prefer the 2 tablespoons), and poppy seeds.
- Stir together to heat through. Press into bottom of prepared baking dish.
- Cook and mash the pumpkin. Blend together with tofu, corriander, salt and pepper and a splash of soy milk. Spoon onto the rice mixture in the baking dish.
- Bake for about 20 minutes to heat through.
- Serve with green salad.
