Creamy Pumpkin/ Butternut Squash

This is pumpkin although using butternut would be better I think! t’s more creamy than pumpkin. This is an experiment for me, I remember doing this for my children when they were babies, not with cheese only butter. The silly thing is, I use grated Parmesan soya cheese which didn’t melt instead of cream cheese. Cream Cheese is better than the grated cheese, try not to make the same mistake as I did other wise I was really pleased with the results, not a lover of pumpkin but with the cheese it was delicious. This side dish goes perfectly with a vegan roast especially in the winter or autumn holiday even in spring and summer it’ ll compliment a nice tofu main dish.


1-2 cups pumkin/butternut squash, peeled and cubed

2 tablespoons vegan butter

1/2 8-ounces vegan cream cheese

2 tablespoons plain vegan milk
