  1. This was great! I used canned pumpkin (I had some in the cupboard I needed to use up), but it still turned out great. We’ll be having this again!

    1. Hi Rebecca, if you can do dairy, you could use regular milk or heavy cream. If not, maybe almond milk? Whatever you try, let us know how it works out!

    1. Yes Laura – it is fairly saucy. You could easily cut down on the liquid ingredients (chicken stock, coconut milk) to make it thicker.

  2. Hi! I saw that 2 cloves minced garlic and 2 Tbls of Olive Oil are in the ingredient list, but not included in the recipe. I added the garlic to my skillet of everything else and just left out the Olive Oil. I’m guessing it will still be delicious!
