RecipeWatch: What to Do With Your Next Pumpkin Craving
Written By: Geoff Kutnick of www.foodbeast.com
Yes, I completely understand that I’m putting together a pumpkin-greatest-hits compilation as we approach the summer. And yes, I’m also aware that this list may seem surprisingly unseasonal due to the nation’s pumpkin craze during the fall months. Speaking for my palate, I know it’s not necessary (or preferred) to wait for leaves to fall to the ground to satisfy my pumpkin craving. So I put together a list of some my newly found favorites that can be enjoyed year round.
Some may call me a pumpkin advocate, but I’m content with knowing what I like, how I like it, when I like it. And odds are when I make Pumpkin and Sausage Baked Ziti or Pumpkin Spice Latte Waffles – you’re going to like it too.
To top it all off, there’s a health bonus using pumpkin since you can cut fatty and high-cholesterol ingredients like butter with the creamy texture of Libby’s 100% Pure Pumpkin. Dozens of recipes and substitution ideas, in addition to some of our favorites below, can be found here. Be prepared to get hungry.
