You didn’t think I was done with pumpkin recipes, did you? 🙂 Well, I am not as of yet! There is still some pumpkin love to be shared and this Nutty Pumpkin & Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips is simply too good to keep to myself.
Today’s recipe is really special to me as it comes from my mum who has been making it for years and now it’s become my specialty too. This Celeriac Veggie Loaf is one of those dishes loved by meat eaters and vegetarians alike. None of the meat eaters ever believe me when I say that there is not a trace of meat in sight! Despite that, it is extremely rich and satisfying dish which is oh so tasty and good for you too!
Macaroni & Cheese is one of those wonderfully comforting, almost coma inducing dishes that make me very happy. I have been making it for my family for years and we all love it. I have created many different variations of mac’n’cheese usually adding different chunky veggies to boost our veggie intake. However, I have never tried it with veggie puree and what better puree to try it with than the pumpkin one to make Pumpkin Macaroni & Cheese?
These delicious Smoked Paprika Roasted Pumpkin Seeds came about as a by-product when preparing my Easy Homemade Pumpkin Puree I shared with you not so long ago. I hate wasting things and throwing these perfect little snacky seeds out would be a crime especially that they are soo easy to roast and turn into perfect nibble.
This week being half term week here in the UK, I fancied a quick and easy snack I could make with the boys for our little excursions. As it’s also a week in a run up to Halloween I knew they would most likely have abundance of chocolate treats so wanted something that little bit healthier. We all love flapjacks but not the amount of sugar in them so decision was made to make a batch that is a bit healthier but still super tasty. Say hello to my Healthier Date & Banana Flapjacks. 🙂
Continuing with the pumpkin theme and the way to utilise my Easy Homemade Pumpkin Pure, today I bring you wonderful and really autumnal recipe for Pumpkin & Cinnamon Muffins with Plum Jam. I was over the moon with how they turned out, moist, light, sweet (but not overly so). Cinnamon, pumpkin and touch of plum jam providing wonderful flavour combination.
With October now in full swing, it is so difficult not to give in to some “pumpkin love” lol. If you are a foodie who loves cooking and baking you will most certainly eat or make a dish containing this gorgeous veg. It’s simply unavoidable! My little guide to Easy Homemade Pumpkin Puree should get you on your way to fabulous autumnal bakes.
I’m absolutely in love with everything pumpkin at the moment. Love using it in both sweet and savoury dishes and am always on the lookout for new inspiration for warming pumpkin dishes.
This Spiced Pumpkin Soup is one of the dishes I have been making for years. It is a perfect autumn/winter warmer, that will definitely warm your cockles on a cold day! Add big hunk of fresh, buttered bread (or some crunchy croutons) and it doesn’t get any better or yummier than this! 🙂
