How to Roast Pumpkin

If you’ve just scraped seeds out of your pumpkin (save those for roasting!), then you’re ready to roast a pumpkin which is, no joke, the easiest squash to roast.

Just halve, scoop out the seeds, and bake!

Let me show you how with this easy, step-by-step tutorial that includes how to make pumpkin purée!

A delicious way to use pumpkin

There's so much you can make with pumpkin in fall and one of them is this healthy pumpkin donut recipe which is perfect for an afternoon with a cup of tea or coffee. Donuts baked in a donut pan are super easy to make and my family loves them!

Fall is all about pumpkins, apples and baking. Have you gone pumpkin picking yet? Speaking of pumpkins, how do you like baked pumpkin goods? I'm a big fan and I go beyond pumpkin pie. After all, pumpkin season is short so I try to make as many pumpkin treats as possible, hopefully we'll get to make my favorite pumpkin bread pudding and pumpkin pancakes again, but first let's talk more about these tasty and healthy baked donuts.

Made with basic ingredients, these pumpkin donuts come together quickly.

  1. Mix the dry ingredients together.
  2. Whisk the wet ingredients together.
  3. Combine wet and dry ingredients.
  4. Fill donut pan.
  5. Bake.

I have a handy trick for filling donut pans— and I swear by it if you’re looking for an easy shortcut. Add the batter to a large zipped-top bag, cut off a corner, then pipe the batter into the donut pan filling only about halfway. The bag makes transferring the batter easy, neat, and quick.

How to Make Pumpkin Puree:

For this recipe, you’ll want to get your hands on a 2 lb pie or sugar pumpkin, which will yield roughly 2 cups of pumpkin puree. Smaller pumpkins have better flavor and will be easier to slice.

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or foil.
  2. Carefully slice the sugar pumpkin in half lengthwise, scoop out and set aside the seeds (you can clean and roast them for a healthy snack!). Place the pumpkin halves cut-side down on the sheet pan.
  3. Roast for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the pumpkins have partially collapsed, and the flesh is very soft and is beginning to pull away from the skin.
  4. Scoop out the flesh and puree until smooth in a food processor. Store in the fridge for up to a week or freeze for later. That’s it!

After tasting this homemade pumpkin puree and Libby’s canned pumpkin (which is technically made from a variety of squash) puree side-by-side, I can say that homemade puree has a significantly better texture and has an overall better flavor on its own.

Tips for Preparing Homemade Pumpkin Puree:

If you are planning on using homemade pumpkin puree for Thanksgiving this year, I recommend making it the week before in order to free up oven space close to the big day.

This Fall Ingredient Makes Boxed Mac and Cheese So Much Creamier

As the cool weather appears, you'll see cans of this stuff on your grocery store shelves — and it's not just for pie.

Fall means all sorts of delightful cliches, from plaid shirts and chunky sweaters to apple pies and cider doughnuts. But the king of them all? Pumpkin. Whether or not you enjoy pumpkin-spice lattes and pumpkin-scented candles, you might very well whip up a dessert that calls for canned pumpkin. I’m NOT talking about pumpkin pie filling, which contains a bunch of sugar and spices. I’m talking about the cans of pure pumpkin. If you’re anything like me, you’ll inexplicably find yourself with a smidgen of canned pumpkin puree leftover. (Why don’t recipes always call for the entire can?). And now is when a brilliant boxed mac-and-cheese hack comes into play.

Recently, I was developing recipes that use up leftover canned pumpkin, and I thought to stir some into homemade mac and cheese. My inspiration? Vegan "mac and cheese" that gets its "cheesy" color, texture and flavor from pureed squash. I figured that pumpkin is a type of squash. So why not add it to regular, non-vegan mac and cheese to amp cheesy flavor up to the extreme? Spoiler alert: the hack was successful. Very.

Because my brain works like that of a hungry child (and I was also thinking about another boxed mac-and-cheese hack), I wanted to test what happened when I added pumpkin puree to boxed mac and cheese, too. So off I went, adding three tablespoons of canned pumpkin to the cooked macaroni along with butter, milk and powdered cheese. As I stirred everything together, the canned pumpkin melted into the sauce, making it thicker, creamier and even more orange. In a word: luscious. Downright luscious. As to the flavor, the pumpkin puree enhanced cheesiness without tasting noticeably like pumpkin. 10/10 I will use this hack all fall, and I might just have to stock canned pumpkin year-round.

These delicious parfaits make it look like you spent far longer in the kitchen than you did—plus you can do it mostly in a blender, no cooking required except to toast pecans. The pumpkin pudding base is flavored with cinnamon, allspice, and date paste, and topped with a decadent Cashew Vanilla Cream. Expect to be handing out the recipe to guests!
