Fall has come and it’s time to dive into some delicious savory pumpkin recipes. These recipes use both fresh and canned pumpkin.
If you are here looking at this post….we have something in common. It’s called Pumpkin LOVE. And apparently, it’s a real thing. I didn’t make it up. Look there is even a book dedicated to Pumpkin Love!
I’m a huge fan of pumpkin. And this time around I wanted to share some savory pumpkin recipes.
There are so many sweet recipes for pumpkin that I thought it would be nice to go in savory salty route. Especially for those who are watching their weight or want a healthier recipe.
All the recipes here would work great for dinner or lunch. Or as a fun dinner night with guests to celebrate the season.
