10 Pumpkin Recipes Worth Trying

Pumpkin Recipes

Deeply interested in all things delicious, seasonal, and spicy, I have surfed to and through many foodie websites getting a taste of the season from my computer screen. Seeking food that calms me and settles my roving summer soul into something warm and comforting, I gathered a collection of recipes that evoke the taste of pumpkin spice.

In an effort to get cooking, what follows is a tailored list of inspirational, multi-purpose pumpkin recipes to try at home. Let’s get cooking!

1. Go-To Snack: Toasted Pumpkin Seeds Three Ways

Heidi Swanson of 101 Cookbooks has a fabulous food blog in which she review and samples recipes from new cookbooks. In this forum she also presents a mix of her own healthy recipes, beautiful original photography, as well as selections of her “favorite things” which is a compilation of things art, food, and design related. I hope this recipe is a foray into loving her blog as I do.

2. Grown Up Milkshake: Bourbon Pumpkin Pie Milkshake

Came across this gem on Pinterest. It’s 5 o’clock. I think I need to go home to make it now.

3. Year-Round Favorite: Pumpkin Ravioli

This is a favorite recipe in our house. We reinvent it in various ways, but this recipe from Saveur looks divine.

4. Deliciously Vegan: Pumpkin Pie Custard

This recipe looks great, and is healthy and vegan, too. I love recipes that are good for me without looking or tasting like they are.

5. Food as Fuel: Chocolate-Pumpkin Muffins

As a trail runner, this recipe could take me through the fall and winter seasons. A great grab-and-go meal.

6. Seasonal Soup: Emeril Lagasse’s Pumpkin, Sage, and Sausage Soup

I have a soft spot in my heart for Emeril after making his AMAZING turkey lasagna. This recipe sounds like it could be just as good. Let me know if you make it!

7. The Season’s Best Breakfast: Pumpkin French Toast Bake

My two-year-old daughter will love it when I make her this.

8. A Slightly Healthier Breakfast (And Still Delicious!): Pumpkin Pie Granola (Nut Free)

We should buy stock in several cereal companies, we eat so much of it. This recipe may save me money and prove to be a boon to the taste buds this season!

9. Pumpkin Pie Re-imagined: Pumpkin Gingersnap Parfait

This looks good, really good!

10. The Ever Useful and Tasty: “Happy Thanksgiving Homemade Pumpkin Butter”

By itself, this could turn any meal or snack into a fall treat.

Send in a photo of your pumpkin infused culinary creation, and we’ll show it off!

Happy cooking to all!
