Top 5 Pumpkin Recipes

Happy Halloween!

 

The day has finally arrived to don that crazy costume, eat some scary food (check here for some healthy options!), carve some pumpkins and bust some moves on that dance floor woo partay!

But there is one problem – I hear you all say “Rebecca…What do I do with my pumpkin after I’’ve done all the partying with ghosts, vampires and werewolves?” and of course I have all the answers to your Halloween woes, you’’re going to take your pumpkin and transform it into something yummy!

Taking a look at these pumpkin recipes they seem fairly fuss free so if I think I can cook up these dishes then you most definitely will.

 

  • Garlicky Pumpkin Risotto

Garlicky-Pumpkin-Risotto-–-Pumpkin-Recipes
In the autumn there is nothing more satisfying than having a dish that will warm you right up. It’’s also good for warding off the vampires! Seriously… this pumpkin recipe contains 9 cloves of garlic, of course recipes are always adjustable, so if 9 cloves seems extreme for you then just cut down your amount.

 

  • Bacon and Pumpkin Pasta

Bacon-and-Pumpkin-Pasta-–-Pumpkin-Recipes
I feel this would be quite a student-esque dish, as it would be something that I would contemplate making for myself after lectures. Everyone loves bacon (apart from vegetarians, but you can easily just leave the bacon out) and as it’’s Halloween, pumpkins are everywhere. Combine the two then you’’ve got this!

 

  • Slow cooker Pumpkin Chilli

Slow-cooker-Pumpkin-Chilli-–-Pumpkin-Recipes
Ooh if this doesn’’t feel like a hug in a bowl then I don’’t know what is! I’’m a lover of chilli anyway but this sounds absolutely lush.

 

  • Harvest Pumpkin Soup

Harvest-Pumpkin-Soup-–-Pumpkin-Recipes
And if none of these are doing it for you – try this soup! Personally I’’m not a big fan of soup, but the look of this is swaying my usual preferences. Also, looking at the ingredients, you’’re looking at the ultimate comfort food in a bowl for the Halloween season.

 

  • Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread

Pumpkin-Chocolate-Chip-Bread-–-Pumpkin-Recipes
To round things off, here’’s a pumpkin recipe to satisfy your sweet tooth – I feel this would be something that you’’d happily eat in your pyjamas, all warm and cosy on the sofa with a feel good film on the tv! Well, at least that’’s what I intend on doing when I get round to making this.

There’’s my Top 5 Pumpkin Recipes that I’’m dying to try out this autumn, if you’’ve got a pumpkin recipe too, share it with us on Twitter or Facebook – I’’m always on the look out for new things to bake/cook 🙂 (it’’s the only way I’’ll improve my non-existant skills…)
