Pumpkin Lasagna Rolls
from FitGirl’s Guide

2 lasagna noodles
¼ cup part-skim ricotta
¼ cup canned pumpkin
2 tbs shredded mozzarella cheese
¼ cup marinara sauce
handful of spinach
pinch of nutmeg
pinch of garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and cook noodles according to package. Mix pumpkin, ricotta, nutmeg, and garlic powder. Rinse cooked noodles with cold water and dry. Spoon ricotta mixture evenly on noodles. Add spinach and roll up into a coil.

Pumpkin Coconut Curry Soup
from Naturally Ella

1 medium pie pumpkin OR 3 cups pumpkin puree
1 tbs olive oil
1 bunch scallions, diced
2 tbs curry powder
2-3 cups vegetable broth
¼ - ½ cup full-fat coconut milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove top of pumpkin. Quarter and remove seeds. Scrape clean. Place each quarter face down in a baking dish and roast for 30-40 minutes. Remove and let cool. Remove the shell and measure 3 packed cups of pumpkin. (Alternatively, use 3 cups canned pumpkin puree.)

Rinse seeds, toss with olive oil and salt, spread on baking tray and roast 15-20 minutes until crispy.

In a sauce pan, heat 1 tbs olive oil. Add scallions and saute 2-3 minutes. Stir in curry powder and let cook 30 more seconds.

Add pumpkin and 2 cups vegetable broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and let cook 2-3 minutes.

Remove from heat and puree with a blender or food processor, adding more vegetable broth to reach desired soup consistency. Return to heat and add ¼ cup coconut milk. Let simmer until ready to serve. Garnish with pumpkin seeds and extra coconut milk.


Pumpkin Chip Cookies
from Taste of Home

1 ½ cups butter, softened
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp salt
2 cups quick-cooking oats
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Classic PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte)
from Delish

1 cup whole milk

1 tbs maple syrup
½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp vanilla extract
¼ cup hot espresso or coffee whipped cream for garnish

In a saucepan over medium heat, whisk together milk, pumpkin, maple syrup, spice, and vanilla extract. Cook until warm, while whisking constantly. Once warm, blend with an immersion blender until frothy (it’s okay to skip this step).
