Hungry For Halloween: 5 Delicious Pumpkin Recipes To Make Tonight

It is safe to say that the pumpkin – a symbol of Halloween and an integral part of American culture – is not just an excellent addition to your daily lattes. You can also add this beloved autumn fruit to a variety of sweet and savory dishes. Loaded with fiber, vitamins, and unlimited decor potential, pumpkins have been a fall favorite for as long as we can remember.

So, in order to show your appreciation for this wonderfully versatile fruit, you can simply put a pumpkin pie in the oven. If you want to “spice” up your jack-o-lantern game, though, here five delicious recipes for you to try.

1. Roasted Pumpkin with Feta and Cilantro

Just because the warmer days are over doesn’t mean that you have to give up on eating salads altogether. There are still countless ways to enjoy a filling salad with seasonal produce. This recipe will satisfy your fall cravings and simultaneously make you feel proud for choosing a healthier option.

2. Pumpkin Fries and Spicy Ketchup

If you’ve grown tired of regular potato or even sweet potato fries, then it’s definitely time for you to try pumpkin fries. Yep, you heard that right! These gourd fries are just as easy to make as sweet potato fries are and they are loaded with vitamins and fiber. And if you pair them with some hot sauce, you’ll get the kick of heat you’ve been so desperately dying for!

3. Pumpkin Spiced Oatmeal

Who said oatmeal only goes well with bananas or cinnamon? Stir in some pumpkin puree, and get ready to start your day off right. But be careful, because you’ll find it hard to eat regular oatmeal ever again – especially with the sub-30-minute prep time!

4. Baked Pumpkin Cinnamon and Sugar Donuts

Add a taste of fall to donuts, and nobody will be able to say “no” to them. In just 15 minutes, you’ll get to devour some of these heavenly ring donuts, and who knows, maybe you’ll even have a few left to share with your loved ones. But, we wouldn’t bet on it, though!

5. Pumpkin Pie Twists

This recipe is literally our favorite fall pie with a twist! If you’re sick of plain old pumpkin pies (but really, who is?), then give this recipe a go! You can serve these tasty crescent roll twists as a tasty treat along with your daily coffee or even bring them to a Halloween or Thanksgiving party. They are a delicious spin on a traditional recipe.

Although it has become a staple around Halloween and Thanksgiving tables, a delicious pie is not the only recipe you can make with a pumpkin. This popular orange fruit is rich in nutrients and it can be eaten in so many ways. With just a little imagination, you have the power to unlock the pumpkin’s scrumptious potential.
