How To Eat Pumpkin Like a Pro This Fall!

by Audrey Cerchiara

If you were ever categorized as “basic” by the Internet, perhaps you are lamenting the loss of pumpkin in your diet this fall as you construct a less PSL-dependent existence. Whatever, HATERS GONNA HATE. The lack-o’-jack-o’-lantern food is a shame given the pulpy nutrients inside: one cup of cooked, mashed pumpkin has 245% of your daily vitamin A and 16% of your daily potassium (not that you were getting that in your latte).

Don’t give up on that pumpkin. Here is a hypothetical menu to eat pumpkin all day in the most un-basic way (except for dessert, because pumpkin was made for pie).

Breakfast: Pumpkin and Feta Muffins from 101 Cookbooks


Lunch: Chili Pumpkin Cranberry Risotto from Post Punk Kitchen


Cocktail Hour: Sparkling Pumpkin Cider Beertail from Brit+Co


Dinner/First Course: Black Bean Pumpkin Soup from Smitten Kitchen 


Dinner/Second Course: Pumpkin Kibbeh from One Arab Vegan


Dessert: Ginger Pumpkin Pie from the kitchn

Happy pumpkin picking!
