Ingredient Spotlight – Pumpkin

One of the signature items of the fall season, pumpkin is such a versatile food. It is delicious, easy to use and goes with so many different flavors. If you’re searching for new ways to add pumpkin to your kitchen table, here are a few ways that you can use pumpkin as an ingredient.

Pumpkin Pancakes

If you are looking for a delicious and healthy breakfast dish to make, look no further. These pancakes are super easy to make – they only require 5 ingredients, plus butter for frying – and are a great way to start your day. They have a different type of texture that most pancakes you’re used too – they’re a bit denser and heartier – but they’re still a great breakfast option. And, these pancakes are freezer-friendly, so you can make a big batch and store some to eat for breakfast another day!

Pumpkin Bread

This pumpkin bread can be enjoyed as a tasty breakfast, snack or side dish, or dessert. It’s pretty simple to make and is super moist, so you’ll probably want to make it a couple of times this fall. It does take around 50 minutes to an hour to cook, so make sure you time it right so that it’s nice and fresh when you sit down to eat.

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Save your Starbucks gift card for something else – this pumpkin latte will be your go-to drink this season. As added bonus, this recipe can feed a bunch of coffee lovers whether at a family get-together or an office party. Since you’ll be using a crock-pot to make it, be sure to turn it on a couple of hours before you actually start making the drink. It will fill your home with a warm and welcoming scent.

Pumpkin & Sage Soup

On a cool evening, this is the perfect soup to eat while curling up on the couch in a warm blanket and watching football. Savory and filling, it will quickly become a fall favorite for you. When making this soup, it is important to get fresh ingredients: fragrant spices including garlic, ginger, and nutmeg, pure pumpkin, and fresh sweet onions and sage.

Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes

You can’t have fall without pumpkin pie in some shape or form. This delicious dessert recipe combines two things I love: pumpkin pie and cupcakes. Light and fluffy with a piecrust bottom and whipped cream frosting, these cupcakes are so tasty. (You may find yourself sneaking a couple at a time.)
