I love when a fruit or vegetable is so versatile that it can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. We continue the pumpkin roundup with some great dinner recipes. And there is something for everyone!
Risotto is a classic Italian dish, and one that is very technical in its preparation. This vegan recipe by Chocolate Covered Katie, adds pumpkin to give it more depth and creaminess. You can even substitute brown rice if preferred.
Still in the mood for Italian? Try these turkey meatballs. They are also made with basil and pumpkin puree. You can even make it on the stovetop or in an Instapot. This recipe from Wholesomelicious can be served with your favorite pasta.
Here is another vegan recipe. This curry recipe from Emilie Eats, incorporates pumpkin and coconut to bring you a spicy, comforting curry dish. Perfect for a chilly fall night.
If you’re not a meat eater, and not quite a vegan, this recipe may appeal to you. Almost everyone loves burgers, and this veggie burger gives you just a touch of pumpkin. The pumpkin is mixed with cannellini beans and oats to create hearty burgers. And all the seasonings bring plenty of flavor. A great veggie burger recipe from Peas and Crayons.
