I grew pumpkins this year, and I’m tired of the usual recipes: pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, etc. So here are five new things to do with pumpkin:
Savory Stuffed Pumpkin. Fill the center of the pumpkin with bread, cheese, cream, and other ingredients and then cook in the oven for 20 minutes. It looks pretty good!
Pumpkin Pasta. The only thing I would change the recipe is to skip the semolina flour and use all-purpose flour instead.
My own pumpkin ice cream was a new recipe this year. I described it as “creamy, icy pumpkin pie filling,” and darn if that isn’t pretty darn close.
Savory Pumpkin Crackers use both the pumpkin and the pumpkin seeds in one tasty-looking gourmet snack. Topped with a nice spreadable cheese, these look like they would impress your guests.
Finally, if you haven’t tried it, Pumpkin Pie Waffles. Delicious!
