To kick off Pumpkin Month, let’s talk about a few of the many ways that the amazing pumpkin can be used!
Of course there’s pumpkin pancakes!
One of my favorite ways to enjoy pumpkin is in oatmeal! A few scoops of pureed pumpkin while the oats cook and you’ve got mega creamy goodness. Add in a few scoops of small curd cottage cheese and suddenly you have pumpkin cheese cake oats! It’s creamy and decadent which is a lovely way to start or finish the day.
Okay, so sweet we know, how about savory?
Pumpkin Penne anyone? Yum!
Pasta not what you’re looking for?
How about some chili? Pumpkin works great in chili! It thickens it up without having to use a bunch of tomato paste. You can’t even taste the pumpkin, but you do have a creamy thick chili that is perfect for a fall evening!
Hooray for pumpkin!
