15 Pumpkin Recipes You’ll Enjoy Just as Much as a PSL
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 puree 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 PersonalPoints®-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 puree is a ZeroPoint™ food for everyone 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.
