The Best Pumpkin Recipes

If you’re a pumpkin fan, then you’re in luck: it’s the most wonderful time of year…..for your taste buds, that is. With fall practically falling right into our laps, the popularity of pumpkin recipes is skyrocketing and it can be hard to know which ones to choose. Consider starting with the following: 

Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin bread is a staple food of fall and something that can work as dessert, breakfast, a potluck contribution, or an on-the-go snack. Made with ingredients that include cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, and (of course) pumpkin, this bread is sweet and filling. It also freezes well, which allows you to make several batches to carry you through all season long.

Pumpkin Cheesecake

It might feel like you’ll gain weight simply by glancing at this pumpkin cheesecake recipe, but it’ll be worth it! Set aside your traditional cheesecake for this ultra-creamy masterpiece. The crust of gingersnap cookies perfectly complements the pumpkin flavor and gives this cake a kick. It’s an ideal Thanksgiving dessert, although it works for any party (including a party of one).  

Pumpkin Risotto

Pumpkin risotto is a wonderful way to add a little autumn to your dinner, although this pumpkin requires a bit of patience (this dish takes about an hour to make). A popular Italian choice, it can be paired with meats or seafood, or it can be eaten on its own.   

Pumpkin Curry

Pumpkin curry is made with pumpkin, tomatoes, chickpeas, coconut milk, red chili powder, and more. It offers the spice of traditional curry with the sweetness and earthiness that pumpkin brings. Grab a side of rice and some naan and revel in all the money you’ll save by avoiding takeout.   

Homemade Pumpkin Spiced Latte 

No pumpkin recipe list can be complete without the mothership: pumpkin spiced latte. While it might be easier to run to Starbucks, it’s a whole lot more expensive, too. This recipe lets you enjoy a rich and creamy coffee with a few simple ingredients. Made with espresso, milk, pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, maple syrup, and vanilla extract, it’s a great motivation for getting out of bed. 

If you delight in the delicious flavors of pumpkin, you might enjoy any pumpkin-centric recipe. Start with the above and gorge on this gourd.
