With pumpkins in season here and Halloween quickly approaching I thought that it would be a perfect time for a pumpkin roundup! I went through all of my pumpkin posts and added a new Pumpkin label them to make them easier to find. As I went through all of the posts I collected my ten favorite ones for your viewing pleasure. Over the last few weeks I have been roasting a lot of pumpkins to make pumpkin puree. Without further adieu here they are:
Pumpkin Pie - My absolute favorite way to enjoy pumpkin has to be the ubiquitous pumpkin pie. In this case I gave the pumpkin pie a gingersnap crust and I garnished it with salted caramel sauce.
Pumpkin Puree - To make a pumpkin pie you of course need some pumpkin puree and its so easy to make your own.
Toasted Pumpkin Seeds - Don't you dare throw away all of those pumpkin seeds from the pumpkin that you just pureed. The seeds make for an easy, tasty and healthy snack in the form of toasted pumpkin seeds.
Pumpkin Pie Milkshake - I always end up with odd amounts of pumpkin puree leftover and using them to make a pumpkin pie milkshake is a cool and refreshing way to go! These pumpkin pie milkshakes are also a great way to cool off after having the oven on all day roasting pumpkins for puree.
Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream - Another cool pumpkin treat would of course be pumpkin ice cream and I always keep my ice cream maker out of storage long enough to make some!
Pumpkin Caramel Cheesecake Turtle Bread - I just recently tried this pumpkin bread and it just rocketed its way to the top 10 pumpkin dishes list! How can you go wrong with pumpkin, caramel, cheesecake and chocolate?
Pumpkin Butter - Pumpkin butter has all the flavours of a concentrated pumpkin pie and the texture of butter so you easily spread your way to bliss every morning with pumpkin buttered toast.
Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake - Did I hear cheesecake get mentioned earlier? Pumpkin pie cheesecakes are just out of this world!
Savoury Pumpkin Pie (Kolokithopita) - Pumpkin can definitely be used in savoury dishes and one of my favorites is this savoury Greek style pumpkin and feta phyllo pie.
Pumpkin and Black Bean Soup - Pumpkin soups always hit the spot on cool fall days and this pumpkin and black been soup is a perfect example.
