It’s pumpkin season again and Fall wouldn’t be complete without pumpkin dishes filling up the table. But pumpkin isn’t just for pies and soup. Pumpkin’s versatility allows it to be used for breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes. From pancakes to pasta, here are 8 of our favorite pumpkin dishes that are not pie or soup.

Pumpkins can be stored in their natural state for up to a month in a cool area of your kitchen. Keep the pumpkin whole and store it in a cool basement if you plan to keep making and baking fresh pumpkin recipes in the weeks leading up to the holidays.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

If you're making a variety of pumpkin dishes, you might want to keep the seeds to use as well. 

Pumpkin seeds are a great choice for a healthy diet and are high in both protein and fiber. Pumpkin seeds are also low in carbs and contain many nutrients such as Vitamin K, manganese, phosphorous, iron, zinc, and copper.
