With the everything-pumpkin-spice season in full swing, we wanted to try out some different ways to enjoy pumpkin this fall. We started with a creamy and savory roasted pumpkin soup. For the honey in our recipe, adapted from CookieandKate.com, we used locally sourced honey from our very own apiary. We paired the soup with garlic bread croutons and a fresh garden salad. Next we pan roasted the pepitas (pumpkin seeds), which can be added to salads and soups, trail mix, and many other dishes. Finally, we baked cinnamon rolls from scratch using some of the pureed pumpkin as filling!
Packing a powerful 200% daily value of Vitamin A, pumpkin consumption can promote eye health and boost immunity. It also contains Vitamin C which can boost immunity to prevent illness, and speed recovery times with common colds and other minor conditions. Pumpkin seeds are high in magnesium, a mineral essential to over 600 body processes. The beta-carotene in pumpkin also makes it a good source of fiber, and it can be used externally to exfoliate and protect skin.
To fully RA PSYCHLE holiday pumpkins, be sure to add discarded skins to compost piles or bins. You can also reserve a few seeds to plant in your own garden next season.
