Favorite Healthy Pumpkin Recipes
Hooray! Fall is here, and that means pumpkin time has arrived! It’s that exciting time of year when markets haul in big loads of pumpkins in all shapes and sizes – and of course – start stockpiling cans of puréed pumpkin on practically every aisle.
That’s when I get down to business filling my pantry with enough pumpkin puree to last the entire year! And if you have a crush on pumpkin like I do, I've got good news for you. Pumpkin is one of the healthiest squash varieties you can enjoy – it’s chock-full of beta-carotene, vitamins A and C, and other important antioxidants.
So, grab your family and head out to your local pumpkin patch (you can find one here) and do some fun pumpkin picking together. Of course, keep in mind, if you’re making your own pumpkin puree, the best tasting ones are those sweet little cooking pumpkins (not the big boys used for carving).
To help you get the most out of pumpkin season (and put to use those stockpiles of pumpkin puree), I thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite healthy and tasty gluten-free pumpkin recipes. Wishing you a healthy and delicious fall!
