Healthy Pumpkin Recipes plus Roasted Pumpkin Seeds and Fresh Pumpkin Puree

I don’t know what my Halloween costume will be yet, but I do know what I’ll be cooking with this weekend- pumpkin. It’s the biggest pumpkin weekend of the year!

Pumpkin is a favorite ingredient of mine. I use it to bake muffins and breads and to make smoothies and comforting soups. Really, I seem to put it in almost everything. I know my readers love pumpkin too, so I thought I’d post all my pumpkin recipes in one place to make them easier to find…and enjoy.

This time of year there’s plenty of fresh pumpkins around, so making fresh pumpkin puree is a no brainer. And, it would be a shame to waste those delicious seeds. Here’s two short video recipes showing how to cook fresh pumpkin and how to bake pumpkin seeds.

Is there a healthy pumpkin recipe you’d like to see? I’m thinking of creating a vegan pumpkin ice cream recipe for Thanksgiving. Sound good?
