No matter how used we are to seeing them, there's something about pumpkins. Whether it's their nailed-on fairytale credentials (Cinderella was going nowhere without hers), the Hallowe'en factor or their intrinsic link to holidays and Thanksgiving; pumpkins are awesome.
They're really good for us as well, with vitamins and fiber aplenty. Not only that, pumpkins are super-versatile and perfect as a cornerstone of hundreds of vegetarian and vegan meals. These recipes feature just a handful of the creamy, spicy, roasted, baked and pureed ways of enjoying pumpkin, and they don't even have to be home by midnight.
