Halloween is coming so you can see lots of pumpkin lanterns and decorations. They look great! But let’s be eco and remember also to use the pumpkin flesh to cook some terrific meals! Don’t waste food.

Pumpkin is a great vegetable that you can use in almost every dish. The basic one is the home-made pumpkin puree, of course. Then you can prepare lots of different dishes using the pumpkin puree: like warming and tasty pumpkin soup or nice and sweet pumpkin cheesecake. Another great thing about pumpkin is that everything is used and you do not waste anything. Roasted pumpkin seeds are a great snack and you can also add them to your meals.

The roasted butternut squash and onion with maple syrup soup is sweet and spice at the same time. Here we mean more garlic spicy than anything else but if you like the fire in your mouth kind of soup you can spice it up with some chilli as well.

What can be better than a pumpkin pie? The answer is Pumpkin Spice Latte! This lovely hot beverage is all you need from a morning coffee. It has a smooth texture and spicy aftertaste to wake you up in the cold autumn morning. 

ROASTED PUMPKIN SEEDS

Do not throw away pumpkin seeds when you do the pumpkin puree or butternut squash soup! Instead, roast them. Roasted pumpkin seeds are a healthy snack, a source of magnesium, iron, zinc and unsaturated fatty acids, as well as B vitamins. They can be added to soups, salads, sauces, cakes and desserts.
