Halloween And Thanksgiving Tasty And Healthy Pumpkin Recipes Websites
In the U.S. Pumpkin Recipes are generally considered seasonal and low on our list of menu items. Then Autumn rolls around and we begin thinking of Jack-O-Lanterns and Thanksgiving Pumpkin pies. Whether served in a soup, a side dish, or a yummy dessert; pumpkin is high in protein and dietary fiber and contains ample amounts of Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Magnesium, Potassium and Zinc. With so many great tasting and healthy pumpkin recipes to choose from there is no reason to you shouldn't be enjoying these dishes year round.
It's quite hard to think of the pumpkin as a gourd, or is it a squash? Maybe it's, both... Either way it's hard to think of a pumpkin as anything other than heavenly when we get down to tasting some of the rather unique but definitely satisfying pumpkin recipes found at the Top Ten Best Unique Pumpkin Recipe Websites - Case in point; The "Pumpkin Whoopie Pies" shown in the introduction photo.
I know some people, probably the ones that have already stopped reading this article, don't care much for pumpkin in any shape or form and there are others who are ambivalent, but to our group; "The Pumpkin Lovers" goes the prize. Even if you don't agree completely that my picks are worthy of the top ten list designation, I do hope you enjoy researching these unique pumpkin recipes as much as I did.
If you get around to cooking up one of the recipes you find, please give a comment and let us know what you thought about it.
