How to use pumpkins.
Every year I grow pumpkins to use in many meals. However when I see so many of these squashes for sale in supermarkets and greengrocer and I know the vast majority are going to be carved into jack o lanterns. I always feel this is such a waste of a great food source. So this week I discuss a few easy recipes that are so simple that I think everyone could make them.
Links to the recipes are as follows.
- Roasted pumpkin seeds from allrecipes. a great way to use seeds from the pumpkins that are used to make jack o lanterns.
- A recipe for pumpkin pie. a great dessert that I feel us Brits are often unsure about. Give it a try, its worth it
- A recipe for pumpkin soup a great comfort food.
I also mention this article from the Guardian where they list there top 10 pumpkin recipes. Reading through this list got me salivating and craving to try these dishes. Check it out and see what you think.
