Overview

Put More Pumpkin in Your Year

Pack your diet with extra nutritional punch! Versatile, delicious pumpkin — a powerhouse of complex carbohydrates, protein, vitamin C, and huge amounts of vitamin A — is landing on many nutrionists' lists of "super foods." Shouldn't it be landing more frequently on your dinner plate?

Take advantage of pumpkin's health benefits all year by adding its mellow flavor and smooth texture to an exciting variety of global tastes and classic baked goods. Use canned puree in spicy Thai Pumpkin Soup; toss a handful of toasted seeds into a hearty Winter Salad with Maple Pumpkin Dressing; or savor the mellow taste of fresh pumpkin in Moroccan Chicken & Pumpkin Stew. Of course the rich spciy flavor of pumpkin pie filling never fails to delight. It's well represented here with six fresh takes on pumpkin pie, along with pumpkin cheesecake, almond pumpkin bread pudding, pumpkin panna cotta, and pumpkin ginger ice cream.

So, use it fresh or canned — there's always a place for pumpkin!
