Scrumptious Pumpkin Recipes for Every Autumn Meal

Pumpkin gets a bad rep this time of year. (Pumpkin spice latte, I’m looking at you.)

But take the glitz and glamour of pumpkin spice everything, the great pumpkin fruit (yes, it’s technically a fruit) is loaded with Vitamin A, fiber, cancer-fighting beta carotene and potassium among others vitamins. Basically, it’s a super food and it wouldn’t hurt you to incorporate a little bit of pumpkin into your life with a few of these recipes this fall.

You knew it was coming, right? But instead of delving into official #PSL territory, this coffee keeps things simple by mixing a little spice directly into your coffee. It’s as easy as mixing + brewing, promise. Get the full scoop (sorry, couldn’t resist) from Izy Hossack at Top With Cinnamon.

Lunch always screams “salad,” and unlike your boring lettuce salad, this version mixes rice, beans and the roasted autumnal favorite fruit.

This soup incorporates sweet and savory with coconut milk and ginger for a bright splash of flavor. Don’t forget to top it off with some toasted pumpkin seeds, which, for the record are loaded with health benefits, such as iron, magnesium and and zinc. Whip up a batch of pumpkin ginger apple soup from Love and Lemons and enjoy it hot or cooled.
