If you grow pumpkins then you know that even one pumpkin can give you pounds of pureed pumpkin in the freezer. I wanted to have more ideas for fixing and eating pumpkins, so I decided to ask some friends how they eat pumpkins: Thus, 77 Pumpkin Recipes… and Counting!
A lot of us have those go-to amazing recipes that we make for Thanksgiving or Halloween get-togethers. If you’d like some new ideas, then look no further!!
Real Food Switch Up
Yes, a lot of these use sugar (Though there are a number of amazing soups and even a stir fry in the mix), but that doesn’t change the fact that they are amazing recipes. We love to take recipes and add our personal tweak to them.
If you go the real food and less sugar route, then you already know some of the tricks:
- Change up the type of sugar (honey substitutes for cane sugar 1:1)
- Add less sugar (If you don’t eat a lot, then you’ll think it tastes better with at least 1/3 less sugar)
- Use whole wheat or unbleached white flour instead of bleached white. Or use a half whole wheat/half unbleached white mixture. I do this and even pastries come out great.
- Instead of store bought creamers and whipped creams, make your own from raw milk if you can get it.
- Use good oils like coconut instead of GMO soy, vegetable, corn, or canola oils.
We don’t eat sugars every day, but we do have some occasionally with a twist and I can’t wait to try a number of these fabulous recipes below!
You Can Too
To give you even more recipes, I’ve made this into a link up where you can add your own pumpkin recipes if you have them. They must be pumpkin recipes though.
If you have a blog, add the link to the Pumpkin Recipe Line-up below. If you don’t have a blog, but have an amazing recipe, please share with us in the comments below!
