10 Savory Pumpkin Recipes Discovered on Pinterest

As Thanksgiving approaches, pumpkin season is in full swing.  On Pinterest, pumpkin recipes are being pinned on almost every food-related board.  Most of the recipes I’ve seen feature pumpkin in a sweet dish.  Cakes, pies, muffins, sweet rolls, ice cream, flan, and the list continues.  As tempting as these recipes appear, personally I prefer using pumpkin in savory recipes:  soups, pasta, and risotto, to name a few.

In Europe, it’s the savory pumpkin recipes that seem to attract top billing.  Many Europeans find it odd that Americans and others use pumpkin in sweet recipes.  It’s always fun on Thanksgiving to encourage friends to try pumpkin pie, the ultimate traditional dessert for the holiday, and watch their reaction.  Some find it intriguingly good, others find it repulsive.  It’s this cultural exchange that makes life interesting.

If you’ve read my blog this autumn season, you already know how much I love pumpkin and this season.  It’s my favorite time of the year.  You can find more than 2,200 recipes on my Pinterest board Pumpkin or Butternut Squash Recipes.  I encourage anyone looking for pumpkin recipes to explore this board, as my collaborators and I have worked hard to compile it for you.  Please share this board and any recipe there with your friends.

Below are 10 Savory Pumpkin Recipes, in no particular order.  All these recipes are available on Pinterest as well on the sites linked in the title of each recipe.

  1. I’ve never been a huge pumpkin eater, mainly because I didn’t know what to you with it. But all of these recipes look delicious. I might have to cook them all, one-by-one. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Yes, it’s odd here in Europe to eat pumpkin in so many different ways but I love pumpkin but remain pretty much “classic” by making good old pumpkin soup for it is in my… hem hem! comfort zone. Although I love the taste of pumkin in a sweet recipe, like I do carrot’s cake for example.
