Hello, pumpkin season! 

Pumpkin is not only tasty, it’s also a superfood because it is high in Vitamins C and A, which help with eye health, boosting immunity, heart health, and more! Here is a list of five creative and tasty recipes that include this delicious and nutritional fall produce. Below each recipe we’ve included quick-links to some of the nonperishable ingredients and utensils that you’ll need to get these dishes started. 

Pumpkin Muffins

Who doesn’t love a muffin on a crisp fall morning? These muffins are made with flour and oats; plus, they are sweetened with honey and use coconut oil instead of butter. They also leverage cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg to spice up the pumpkin, giving them a well-rounded taste. Add some extra protein by topping these muffins with an almond or peanut butter spread.

Pumpkin Soup

This recipe is fast, easy, comforting, and vegan! The recipe uses coconut milk instead of dairy milk, creating a nice, silky texture.
