Healthy Pumpkin Recipes
There are so many pumpkin recipes available online, it can sometimes be difficult to know which ones to try first. To make things as easy as possible, I rounded up my favourite healthy pumpkin recipes to try this fall.
These healthy pumpkin recipes use mostly canned pumpkin puree, so rest assured that they are also super easy to make. While pumpkin is often used in sweeter recipes, it can also be a way to boost flavour in savoury recipes while adding an extra nutritional component.
Frequently Asked Questions
Pumpkin is pretty healthy as it is, so as long as you don't overdo it on the sugar or fat, chances are your pumpkin recipe will already be pretty healthy. This list of recipes includes some of my favourite options that don't overdo it on the calories!
I find it's easier to use canned pumpkin puree. It's easy to get at the grocery store year-round, and it can be used for just about any recipe. If you want to use fresh pumpkin, you can make pumpkin puree from scratch, but canned pumpkin is just as good and cuts down on prep time.
In addition to adding plenty of flavour to your dish, pumpkin is also super healthy and a great way to sneak in some added nutrients to your meal. Pumpkin is rich in a variety of nutrients like vitamin A, iron, magnesium and vitamin K. It’s also low in sugar and high in fibre!
