Vegetables in Pumpkin Gravy

Since December my husband is diagnosed with #UC , called Ulcers’ Colitis, in which he cannot have any spices, no dairy, very limited vegetables, no tomatoes, no soft cheese,  in total he has to change his diet completely. So now his life style has totally changed , he lost 30 pounds of his weight and he will be on medication for his rest of his life. So now in my kitchen 3 types of food is cooking, one for him, one for me, and one for my kids. He can have brown rice only. So I am going to share special recipes which we developed for this kind of patients, again everyone’s reaction to this vegetables is totally different, this suits my husband, it might not suitable to other patients so use your judgment and make this. But for normal people also this is very good, because without all this spices, you can actually taste the vegetables real taste. We made so many dishes and forgot to take pictures but hey  it’s going to be happen again so wait for it.

Ingredients :

1 cup of orange pumpkin
½ red capsicum
½ carrot

1 each red and green capsicum- chopped
1 zucchini chopped
1 carrot chopped
1 sweet potato chopped
Salt and black pepper as per taste
1 tbsp. extra virgin oil oil


In a two cup water, boil pumpkin, red capsicum and carrot.
Cook it till it becomes soft.
When it’s done, leave it aside and when its cold, make a fine puree.
Heat a pan, add EVOO in it,
Add puree in it and cook till extra water evaporates.
Add  vegetables in it and cook till its cooked but not mushy.
Add salt and pepper and mix it.
