Today we are going to try something new. About once a month, we send an enewsletter out to subscribers rounding up highlights of our recent recipes. Seeing as not everyone visiting this blog is signed up for that newsletter, we will start posting those highlights here on Cooking Chat too. This month leads off with some great pumpkin recipes, followed by an eclectic mix of recipes that include vegetarian options and a couple of good ones for omnivores. Read on for great pumpkin recipes and other tasty dishes. And to join our enewsletter list to get our roundups in your inbox, simply add your email into the signup box in the right hand side bar.
Believe it or not, not one of the 500+ recipes I have posted on Cooking Chat featured pumpkin as a main ingredient. So this October we set that straight, and went all in on cooking with pumpkin.
We started out with the Pumpkin Patch Soup shown above. Roasted pumpkin and garlic with some Middle Eastern spices made this vegan recipe delicious. And I found a great pairing for it — believe it or not it wasn’t wine!
Don’t worry, most of our recipes have wine pairings still, including the other pumpkin recipes we made. We spiced things up with our Pumpkin Chickpea Curry with Kale. That paired up nicely with an Italian white wine.
