5 Delicious Pumpkin Recipes For The Season

If you’re carving jack-o-lanterns, be sure to save the seeds and the pumpkin. Pretty much everything except the pulp and the stem is edible (if anyone figures out a way to eat those, let me know). Once Halloween is over, make your own pumpkin puree, then go to town making pumpkin recipes with these five dishes:

Southwestern Pumpkin Burgers

This is a great weeknight meal and a good way to get your kids to eat their veggies. Served in tortillas, these make a healthy, delicious dinner for the whole family.

Roasted Pumpkin Apple Soup

Hopefully the weather in LA will cool off so I can start making soups and stews. This soup combines two great fall ingredients to make one savory dish. It’s a great way to get your kids to eat fruits and veggies all in one meal.

    Yummo! Can’t wait to try the dressing and the soup. We made pumpkin chili the other day that was SUPER tasty! It was pretty much our favorite chili recipe with a can of pumpkin. It made it richer/creamier. Definitely give it a try! Thanks for sharing.

    Frankenstorms a blowin’ in, so I’m making this comment before the power goes away!
    I LOVE pumpkin ravioli and recently tried pasta with a pumpkin sauce instead of alfredo. I’m dying to try some of the recipes. I will look at them and make any adjustments to make them vegetarian and maybe comment after I’ve made them. They sound SO good!

    You should try making a vegetarian vegetable squash soup. I just made one and it was awesome!!! No cream just water and the squash will naturally thinken the soup. Add whatever veggies you like (I used carrot, onion and celery).

    Whisky pumpkin pie. My mom made it one year and I’ve looked at pumpkin pie the same way. Just made it for a friends thanksgiving party and everyone loved it. I also love just plain roasted pumpkin or roasting it and making soup.
