A couple weeks ago me and my friend Ben made a pumpkin sambar to serve at a film screening event called Moviehouse at 3rd Ward. Usually sambar is made with lentils, but since I saw all of these really awesome Japanese pumpkins at the farmer's market, I thought they would make a really good base in place of lentils. The green pumpkins are called kabocha and they look like this and have a really nice creamy inside. I also had some butternut squash so threw that in too.
sambar and just substitute in roasted and cooked squash for lentils.

The film explores the complexities embedded in the highly debated practices of the American meat industry. It was a really fun event to be a part of. Thanks Moviehouse!
