I’ve been cooking with pumpkin all week and I hope it gave you ideas on what to do with this vegetable you usually buy for Halloween and have to do something with it on November 1st.
I think you can imagine that we had it all week in all different way! :-)
It started with
For supper we had Coconut pumpkin cream soup
And today the gluten free pumpkin muffins.
All that with just 1 medium pumpkin, and 6 people eating all this. Imagine the amount of food that can be made with all what is being thrown in the garbages every November 1st.!
