19. Spicy Sriracha Pumpkin Seeds

Spicy Sriracha Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds are my favourite part of Halloween. I wait all year for them. I usually simply roast them with olive oil, salt and pepper. And while that is all fine and dandy, this year I decided to try a little something different. First of all, I decided to forgo the olive oil and use butter. Good choice. Next, I decided to mix in some sriracha. Best. Choice. Ever. If you like spicy snacks you’ll love these too. They are nutty, salty and they’ve got a hint of heat at the end. I just might have to carve pumpkins more than once a year so I can make them more often.

 Cranberry Pumpkin Seed Granola

We love granola for breakfast. It is delicious when paired with Greek yogurt, served with almond milk and fresh fruit, or even just enjoyed plain!  Making homemade Cranberry Granola may sound a little intimidating, but it truly is quite easy. With just a little stirring and baking time, you can save quite a bit of money by not buying granola at the store. The combinations for granola recipes are endless, but we really enjoy Cranberry Pumpkin Seed Granola in colder months.

Pumpkin spice oatmeal cookies are like nothing I’ve ever tasted before. They’re big, chunky cookies with lots of ‘stuff,’ in them, and the texture is perfection.

15. Pumpkin Hummus

 Pumpkin Hummus

As the recipe title suggests, the idea for this vibrant pumpkin hummus hails from Lebanon. This pumpkin hummus is actually way less fussy to make than the classic one as there is absolutely no soaking, peeling or coaxing your blender involved. Despite much less effort, this beautiful dip is absolutely to die for. It’s creamy and extremely addictive. Although today’s pumpkin hummus does not contain chickpeas, it does have all other classic hummus ingredients: tahini, lemon and garlic so I’ve taken the liberty of calling it hummus too.

14. Kale and Pumpkin Seed Pesto

 Kale and Pumpkin Seed Pesto

A whole bunch of kale can quickly be turned into a gorgeously green pesto, flecked with toasted pumpkin (pepita) seeds, a touch of coriander (cilantro) and chilli if you so desire. If I’m making it knowing the kids will be eating it I leave these out, but if I’m being greedy… I put them in, that way only I get to eat it. As with any pesto, this is wonderful stirred through cooked pasta, smeared onto toast, swirled through a bowlful of steaming hot soup or vegetable stew, or thinned down with a little extra lemon juice and olive oil and used as a wonderful dressing.

1. Roasted Garlic Sage Pesto Pumpkin Soup with Spicy Fried Pumpkin Seed

Roasted Garlic Sage Pesto Pumpkin Soup with Spicy Fried Pumpkin Seed

Pumpkin and sage is always a match made in heaven. I decided to fancy up the old bowl of goodness with a cheeky little punch of sage pesto. I did the pesto with some sage and arugula, for the hit of pepper and the colour. Hazelnuts and pecorino for some richness and a dash of balsamic and lemon juice for the perfect tangy kick. This pesto adds the perfect forestry, herby notes to the roasted pumpkins. For some crunch, I made a salty, spicy praline with some hazelnuts and pumpkin seeds. This was all things heaven! So what are you waiting for guys??? Try these delicious pumpkins and enjoy these fall days!
