When the weather cools down, it’s time to warm up the oven. Cooking with seasonal ingredients is a great way to embrace the arrival autumn, of and nothing says “fall” like bright orange pumpkins. They’re not just for decoration, so check out these appetizing pumpkin recipes!
Roast Pumpkin and Toasted Pumpkin Seeds
Cooks love to see pumpkins come through their kitchens because you can use the whole gourd in your cooking. The Roast Pumpkin and Toasted Pumpkin Seeds makes the most of the pumpkin inside and out. You’ll need to cut open the top and empty the pumpkin of its pulp and seeds as normal, and you can do this while your oven preheats to 400 degrees. When the pumpkin is clean and dry, pour in maple syrup and cinnamon to add some seasonal sweetness, then pop it in the oven for 40 minutes. The seeds can be treated sweet or savory, coated with either cinnamon sugar or something hearty like garlic salt or onion powder.
Pumpkin pulp can be pureed and cooked into a delicious spread for toast, biscuits, and whatever you might crave for an autumn breakfast or brunch. The puree will need to be heated in a saucepan along with lemon juice, honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg, all with the occasional stir to ensure consistency. The result is a smooth, dairy-free spread with a delightfully rich texture and flavor.
Pumpkin Apple Muffins
This dish combines pumpkin puree with another autumn offering, apples. The type of apple you choose will influence the muffins’ flavor and tartness, and to sweeten the deal, you’ll need to add your choice of honey or agave nectar. Then, 20 minutes in the oven at 350 degrees should yield a plump dessert fit to end any meal on a high note.
