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.
