What’s Thanksgiving Without Pumpkin Pie? | E-Neighborhood Advisor



Pumpkin pie is standard fare at most
Thanksgiving feasts. Many of us look forward
to eating it for dessert once a year. However, if
you are tired limiting your pumpkin intake to
that thick, sweet piece of pie at the end of this
already-filling meal, consider these interesting
alternatives.

You can find pumpkin mixed into soups,
salads, main dishes, desserts (other than pies)
and even drinks. Here are a few different ideas
to get your culinary juices flowing: pumpkin
soup, pumpkin ravioli, pumpkin-chicken chili,
pumpkin risotto, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin
muffins, scones, cookies, bars and breads,
pumpkin butter, pumpkin-pecan cheesecake,
pumpkin beer, pumpkin fudge, and pumpkin
crème brûlée.

Recipes for these and many other pumpkin
dishes are plentiful online, here are a couple
recipe lists you can choose from:

And, if you want to start a new pumpkin
tradition, roasted pumpkin seeds are easy-
to–make and not as time-consuming as baking
a pumpkin pie. It is a fun multi-generational
activity which can be enjoyed by children all
the way up to senior citizens as your
Thanksgiving Day unfolds.

Here are step-by-step directions:
 Rinse the seeds in cold water and
remove the pulp and fibers, then drain
and blot dry.
 Coat pumpkin seeds with melted butter
or vegetable oil and sprinkle lightly with
salt or your favorite seasoning.
 Spread them on a baking sheet and
roast at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 20-
30 minutes or until golden brown.
One four pound pumpkin will yield
approximately two cups of seeds.

If you roast some of the seeds and plant
others, next year you will have your very own
pumpkin patch. Then you can select from
pumpkins you have grown for use in recipes,
thereby starting another tradition for you and
your family!


P.S. Here's a joke for you!
What did the pumpkin say after Thanksgiving?

Good-pie everyone!
