Yup, still using the pumpkin up. This one has a few steps–all easy.

Pumpkin patch

dressing

  • 1/2 block tofu (silken or firm–you’ll be blending it)
  • 1 bunch scallions
  • 1 c arugula (adds a spicy flavor)
  • 1 t soy
  • 1 t garlic
  • 1 t ginger
  • 1 t olive oil
  • 1 t balsamic vinegar
  • 1 squeeze of honey mustard

Blend all of that together in a food processor.

salad

  • 2 cups arugula (or any other greens)
  • 1/4 of a pumpkin roasted and sliced into pieces
  • 1/4 of a red onion
  • scallions diced
  • cherry or grape tomatoes
  • grated carrot
  • walnuts or better yet pepitas or pumpkin seeds.

Put it all into a bowl and mix up with the dressing.
