5 Healthy Pumpkin Recipes to Make This Fall

It’s pumpkin season!

From sweet pie to savory soup, pumpkins provide that cozy autumn flavor and they’re super nutritious, too.

Pumpkins are packed with nutrients like vitamin A, which aids vision, and carotenoids, which protect the skin. They’re also high in fiber and nutrients like iron, zinc, and potassium.

Here are five delicious and healthy pumpkin recipes to enjoy this fall…

  10. Thank you for sharing these amazing recipes

  11. Beautiful photos BUT there is no link to the recipes. Thank you

  12. Just wanted to say thanks for these recipes!!! The pie was the only one that had a downloadable recipe card, but the others are worthy of copying down by hand!! Unfortunately, no real directions for roasting pumpkin seeds. I’ll assume the seeds are spread in a single layer on a baking sheet (greased/lined with parchment paper or ungreased?), but not sure at what temp. to roast them or for how long. Help??? Can’t wait to give these a try!!! Yum Yum!!! :) And the pdf of the spice labels is gorgeous!!! Thanks so much!!!!

  13. Thank you for these wonderful recipes! I will certainly enjoy all year long.

  14. Thank you so much for the Spice Chart – am definitely going to get it printed & put it upwhere I can have quick & easy access to it -Iook forward to working with it ….. & also the pumpkin recipes -they look scrumptious !
