20 Cozy Pumpkin Recipes For the Fall (All Vegan!)

20 Cozy Pumpkin Recipes For the Fall (All Vegan!)

We all know pumpkins are great for carving, but don’t stop there! This seasonal squash makes a healthy and delicious addition to hearty soups and stews, risottos, pies, muffins, and even smoothies.

Health Benefits

Pumpkin is low in calories, but packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and disease-fighting antioxidants. A 1-cup serving of fresh pumpkin contains 49 calories, 3 grams of fiber, and over 200 percent of your daily value for vitamin A from beta carotene! (It’s even good for your dogs and cats!)

Beta-carotene is a plant carotenoid that is converted to vitamin A in the body, and has been shown to protect against heart disease, certain cancers, and some of the degenerative aspects of aging.

Pumpkin is also a great source of vitamins C and E, the B complex, and minerals like copper, calcium, potassium and phosphorus.

Pumpkin seeds can be toasted and eaten on their own, and they’re great to incorporate into recipes for their strong, sweet taste. But no matter how you eat them, you’ll be infusing your body with a tremendous amount of nutrients. So the next time you are tempted to toss away those seed, read this article which includes a ton of great uses for pumpkin seeds!
