Pumpkins – Just on time for Halloween!

Does anyone have any pumpkin recipes? We have been using them mostly for soup, we would greatly appreciate new ways of cooking with them. Thanks!

Here are the little pumpkin seedlings when they were still babies only a few month ago around June.

  1. Congratulations! They look amazing! I’ve discovered that pumpkin goes very well with moustard. So I kind of created a purée 🙂
    I let big pieces of pumpkin boil in water. Then, if they’re organic, I leave the peel on and mash them completely. If they’re not organic, I take off the peel before mashing. I mash them with a hand mixer. Then I add many spices like turmeric, paprika, less than a pinch of cumin, a little bit of olive oil, a pinch of pink salt, a bit of ground coriander and (here’s the special part) a mixture that is called “moustarde à l’antigue”, which is nothing more that an old recipe for moustard seeds. You can find it easily at the big green grocers or even in supermarkets. I add all of the spices and try it to see if I should add more. It goes great as a garnish with almost everything and it’s quite easy to make! Hope you like it! <3

  2. Well done, that’s inspiring! I’ve always loved roasted pumkins, cut in half, clean out seeds, add some spice, go with lots of garlic or maybe maple syrup/honey and roast in medium hot oven until done.
