With Halloween around the corner, the green grocers here in North London are piled high with pumpkins. As is tradition, we will be buying a couple to carve into lanterns. But as I try to avoid food waste, I have found myself doing my usual search for vegan friendly pumpkin recipes.
I wanted to share some of my finds here and direct you to some delicious pumpkin treats! And these are also a good way of cashing in on the potassium and beta-carotene (a carotenoid that converts to vitamin A), calcium, magnesium and vitamins E and C that are found in pumpkins.
BBC Good Food
As always, BBC Good Food have come up with a delicious array of pumpkinny recipes. With everything from pumpkin hummus and pumpkin soup, to pumpkin pancakes and even pumpkin cheesecake! There is also a roasted pumpkin seed recipe to make sure no part of your pumpkin goes to waste.
Tesco’s website offers a ’10 of the best pumpkin recipes’ page, including this delicious looking pumpkin and harissa winter bake, which I will certainly be trying out!

I was lured in by Good Housekeeping magazine, with this gorgeous looking vegan pumpkin focaccia.
