Nutritionally speaking, pumpkin rocks. It’s loaded with Vitamin A, an important antioxidant that keeps our bodies strong and healthy, warding off free radical damage. It’s also a good place to get fiber, which helps with satiety and promotes good intestinal health. From a culinary standpoint, pumpkin is a dream. It tastes amazingly earthy and sweet when roasted. When cooked and pureed, it creates a beautiful, rich (low calorie) filling for ravioli and lasagna. And when that same puree is used in quick breads or muffins, you get a treat that is super-moist and delicious without having to use a lot of butter or oil. And those seeds! Wow, are they under-utilized! Roast them and use them as a topping for salads, soups or to just to have as a snack.

Now, that you’re ready to get your apron on, check out these awesome recipes that celebrate and honor one of our favorite gourds!
