Autumn is easily my favorite time of year. The changing leaves, the crisp, fragrant air, cozy sweaters, and pumpkin spice lattes—seriously, what’s not to love?!
When it comes to autumnal cuisine, I am particularly smitten with foods containing pumpkin. Puréed pumpkin, roasted pumpkin, pumpkin seeds….it doesn’t matter what it is, really–if it’s pumpkin derived, I’m probably going to love it.
And don’t even get me started on “pumpkin spice”.
So, so, good.
Now the thing I like most about pumpkin is it’s versatility. Most (if not all of you), reading this have probably had pumpkin in a sweet treat of some sort (pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin donuts, etc.), but I’d be willing to bet there at least a few of you that have yet to try pumpkin in a savory dish. If you fall into this category, believe me when I say you are missing out! Pumpkin has a unique flavor profile that allows it to complement both sweet and savory ingredients.
The following list includes a number of internet links for unique pumpkin dishes (some sweet and some savory), from a wide array of sources around the web. All of the recipes I have included here are both gluten-free, and vegan, although many are compatible with other dietary restrictions (Top 8 free, low carb, low sugar, sugar-free, Keto, Whole 30, Paleo, etc.).
Please be aware that some of these recipes (but not all) do contain common allergens, such as nuts. As always, I encourage you to read over every recipe, and label very carefully before preparation and/or consumption.
Now, without further ado, here are 32 Unique Gluten-free and Vegan Pumpkin Recipes! Enjoy! 🎃
