15 pumpkin recipes you’ll enjoy just as much as a PSL

Experience all the fall feels with these pumpkin recipes for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
Published October 19, 2020

In autumn, pumpkin is everywhere, from breakfast classics like pumpkin spice pancakes to the somewhat unexpected lunch and dinner options—hello, creamy pumpkin pasta! And the number of pumpkin-containing foods seems to grow every year. (Just browse the shelves of a Trader Joe’s to see what we’re talking about.)

If you love to cook, try using canned pumpkin purée in some of your own traditional fall recipes: Stir some into chili to add instant thickness and creaminess, or add some to a quick-bread batter as a stand in for some of the recipe’s oil.

Prefer to go by the book? The Points®-friendly pumpkin recipes below will help you get your pumpkin fill thanks to pumpkin pie spices, pumpkin puree, or both.

As long as it’s unsweetened, canned pumpkin purée is a ZeroPoint® food and an excellent source of Vitamin A. Just don’t be fooled by its grocery shelf neighbor, canned pumpkin pie filling; it’s loaded with added sweeteners.
