The 5 Best Pumpkin Recipes

Looking for some new pumpkin recipes this year?! I love cooking and using fresh pumpkin puree makes the flavor so rich, so I thought I’d share my go-to recipes using fresh pumpkin with you!

First of all, I usually get one pumpkin per fall season. Once I cook it and puree all the goodies inside, I have enough for several recipes. Last year, I got one medium sized pumpkin and made pumpkin bread and pie that week. I froze the rest of my puree by the cup and wrote on the ziplock bag how many cups were in each bag. That way I could pull out just what I need for a recipe the rest of the season without wasting the fresh pumpkin!


1. Pumpkin Crisp

This recipe comes from the Novice Chef, and is absolutely dreamy! You can edit the recipe to make it a little healthier and eat with yogurt in the morning, or keep the sugar and serve with ice-cream for dessert!


2. Pumpkin pie

So, my family has a secret recipe handed down that I’m not allowed to share with you… but I’ve also tried this one and its to die for! Together as a Family throws some maple in with her pie ingredients and it’s something you don’t want to miss! Completely worth trying this year!


3. Pumpkin Muffins

There are so many delicious muffin recipes out there, but personally I love homemade streusel on my muffins! Dinner At The Zoo has a scrumptious recipe, I mean this picture alone will have you drooling, just wait until you smell them cooking in your oven!


4. Chipotle Pumpkin Bisque

I love a good savory pumpkin recipe and this soup is easy to make and so comforting on a cold fall day! Pair with some everything bread, homemade sourdough or a fresh salad! Believe me, you won’t regret it.

4. Pumpkin Fettuccine Alfredo

If you’re wondering can a vegetable really improve pasta… my answer is “Yes, yes it can!” This Pumpkin Alfredo recipe is so creamy, warm and delicious, perfect for the fall season!
I hope these ideas spark your creativity in the kitchen and get you ready to purchase and prepare your pumpkin for fall cooking! If you try any of these out, tag Third Day Market, I’d love to see what’s your favorite!
