To make your own cream, start by soaking the
Cashew Nuts (1/4 cup)
Almonds (3/4 cup)
overnight. Separate the cashews from the almonds. Reserve 3 tablespoons of the water they were soaking in.
Add the almonds to a food processor or kitchen ninja. Blend until the almonds are more like a mush.
Add the almond mush to a milk nut bag. Squeeze out all the liquid. Add the liquid back to the ninja, add the cashews and the reserved water. Blend until smooth and creamy. You want a 3/4 cup of cream for this recipe.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and carve out your
Blue Hokkaido Pumpkin (1)

Garlic (1 clove)

Place the pumpkin on a baking pan or dish and roast for about 45 minutes to an hour – or until the skin of the pumpkin is easily pierced with a fork.
While the pumpkin is cooking, prepare the
Brown Rice (1/2 cup)
according to the package's instructions.
When the pumpkin is finished, let it sit while you wilt the
