Using up pumpkin: recipe roundup, vegan, gluten free

It’s October now so you might be considering buying and carving a pumpkin soon.  But what do you do with the leftover flesh?

For years when I was growing up it just went in the bin – I don’t ever remember cooking with it.


Pumpkin is really good for you, as I outlined in my post on Marrow and Pumpkin Soup.

For a quick recap, here is the lowdown:

Or you could try carrot, pumpkin and coriander soup

But other than soup what can you make?

I had this uber-breakfast of pumpkin overnight oats and pumpkin eggs, with a dash of sriracha sauce

If overnight oats aren’t your thing, stir your pumpkin into your porridge.

Of course, there’s always the pumpkin smoothie if you like something lighter in the mornings

Or change up my marrow and pecan cake with pumpkin instead of marrow.
