Delicious Pumpkins

Pumpkins aren’t only for carving ghouls and giving trick-or-treaters a fright! You can also cook them for a tasty and satisfying meal. Here are some tips:

When choosing a pumpkin, look for smaller pumpkins which are more flavourful.
Roast and blend pumpkin to make delicious pumpkin soup; you can also add pureed pumpkin to baked goods too for more fibre and flavour.
Remove the insides and seeds, then peel and cube pumpkin; toss cubes with some cinnamon and roast until tender; serve it alongside your favourite cold-weather meal.
Add pumpkin to stews, soups, or chili.
