Pumpkin Challenge: Week 4

Until next year, I’ll be dreaming up more pumpkin recipes – perhaps a pumpkin pasta dough, pumpkin juice mead, or pumpkin ketchup…

Pumpkin Challenge: Weeks 2 & 3

The Pumpkin Challenge has been moving along this year quite nicely! We’ve had a steady supply of baked goods to rely on, including Jake’s pumpkin granola and pumpkin rye bread, along with some savory cheddar muffins I made with pumpkin in the batter. We also got a chance to go out pumpkin picking, and came…

Vegan Pumpkin Mapo Tofu

I was in the mood for mapo tofu a few days ago, and made a vegan version substituting Chinese cabbage and shiitake mushrooms for meat. The mushrooms have a deep umami, and paired with crumbled soft tofu, the recipe below made for a rich, savory, spicy stew.

Pumpkin Kimchi

I really love the flavors of this kimchi: tangy pumpkin and dark leafy greens fermented with bright ginger, fall apples, and chiles.

The Pumpkin Challenge: Week 1

This year Jake and I have embarked on the 6th Annual Pumpkin Challenge, where we aim to eat pumpkin each day for the month.

Pumpkin & Tofu Potstickers

These pumpkin potstickers are a tried and true pumpkin challenge favorite, and I look forward to them as an October treat.

Pumpkin Empanadas

These empanadas are savory and delicious, and the sweet saucy filling pairs well with a bright salsa.
