A few weekends ago I went pumpkin-picking and ended up bringing home a nice 10-pounder. I've been trying to think of a good way to cook it, so I decided to go through my archives to get re-inspired.
Here are some of my favorite easy and fun pumpkin recipes over the past few years. What have you made with pumpkins so far this season?
1. Pumpkin Hummus (above) - One of my favorite ways to make hummus, using roasted pumpkins and pumpkin seeds.
3. Pumpkin Fried Rice - It's a great east-meets-west seasonal side dish.
4. Taro and Pumpkin Tofu Puffs - This one is a little more challenging, but it's still pretty quick to put together and makes for a great, impressive vegetarian appetizer.
