We don't want to squash your hopes, but by now even the most stubborn of us have to admit that summer is over and autumn has taken it's place. With Halloween just around the corner and copious amounts of Pumpkin Spiced Lattes being consumed, there is no denying that the new season is already in full swing. So to celebrate the changing leaves (and temperature!) we have brought you 15 recipes using everyone's favourite fall vegetable that will make the transition into the colder days much, much more enjoyable.
1. Starting off with a classic that we are sure most of you have had before - butternut squash soup. However this recipe for a Butternut Squash + Coconut Soup from Set the Table is with a twist- veering off the traditional version by introducing some Thai flavours into the mix.
6. This Roasted Pumpkin with Chili Yogurt and Coriander Sauce, like the polenta, is the perfect side dish transformed into a delicious and healthy main course. So go over to Drizzle & Dip to get the full recipe.
14. Of course we can not get to the end of this post without giving you a recipe for a pumpkin classic - pumpkin pie. So head over to Love & Lemons to find out how to make a vegan friendly version of this traditional autumn treat. After looking at their photos who wouldn't want to eat these beautiful Mini Vegan Pumpkin Pies???
15. Last but certainly not least is this gluten-free Pumpkin Pancake recipe that we found on Top With Cinnamon. Combining two of our favourite things - pumpkin and breakfast! For other yummy ways to use squash also try her Healthy Sticky Chocolate Fudge Cake that - if you read our October Book Club you already know - is one of our favourites of hers or try her Banana Pumpkin Caramel Cake.
