Pureed pumpkin is perfect for making silky pies and moist muffins. But don’t limit your use of this favorite fall ingredient to dessert recipes! Like potato pancakes, these savory pumpkin cakes are served as a side dish and can be dipped into applesauce or cashew cream.
Trick…or treat? This tasty frozen dessert is a little of both! Creamy, cold and rich, it’s got all the appeal of soft-serve ice cream. But instead of dairy, coconut milk and almond butter are blended with pumpkin for a healthier chilled “cream” confection.
It’s fall, which means you can’t turn a corner without seeing pumpkins – both fresh and canned. But aside from carving a scary face and baking up a delicious pie, what else can you do with this bulbous, bright orange vegetable? Glad you asked.
