7 Unique Ways to Cook Pumpkin

Pumpkin flavored treats are delicious this time of year, but they aren't always the healthiest. Pumpkin is both delicious and nutricious, and can be incorporated into savory recipes too!

Below are 10 creative ways to enhance your dishes with a classic fall staple.



Chunks of pumpkin can be sliced or cubed, coated in salt, pepper and olive oil, and roasted at 400° F for 35-40 minutes, or until tender. Roasted pumpkin is great in salads, or combined with other vegetables for a hearty vegetarian dish.


Pumpkin is a great soup base. Its hearty flavor & thick consistency work well with a variety of flavors and ingredients. Whether it's a classic pumpkin bisque, or curried pumpkin soup, this healthy fruit will make your recipe shine.


Pumpkin pairs perfectly with cheese, making the ultimate creamy concoction. Try getting creative with Pumpkin Alredo sauce or keep things simple and mix pumpkin into your mac n' cheese. It will bring fall flavor and some extra nutrition to a classic dish.


Pumpkin hummus is easy to make and packed with flavor. All you do is add 2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree to every 1 cup of your favorite hummus recipe and viola. Feel free to add additional seasonings or spices of your choice.


Pumpkin can add an extra flare to your favorite chili recipe. Its earthy flavors pairs perfect with either a bean or turkey based chili recipe. 


Pumpkin can be easily blended into biscuit batter, making them extra moist and flavorful. They can be a delicious savory side or breakfast morning treat. 


Next time you're making pizza, try using pumpkin puree instead of tomato sauce. Spread it over unbaked pizza dough, top with mozzerella, pumpkin seeds, and any other toppings you like, and bake as usual. 

As always, check out for all your restaurant needs.
