You know that fall season is in full swing when you see orange everywhere and the scent of pumpkin spice lattes is in the air. And of course, pumpkins. Lots and lots of pumpkins. In fact, one of Halloween’s most popular and recognizable icons is that of a pumpkin carved with a scary face on it.
But aside from Jack-O-Lanterns and the neverending pumpkin spice lattes that you get from your neighborfood coffee shop, did you know that you could use pumpkins in a variety of other dishes too? It’s a very versatile ingredient. The pumpkin fruit itself can be used in pies and other desserts. While the other parts of the pumpkin plant (i.e.leaves, stems, roots) are considered as vegetables and used in a variety of savory dishes.
In case you have a surplus of pumpkins lying around, here are some of the most pinned pumpkin recipes on Pinterest that you can try out.
