Vegan Pumpkin Recipes to try this fall

Leaves turning orange and red until they fall to the ground (those can be slippery as hell), a lot more rainy days, and cold temperatures.. to be honest fall isn’t my favorite time of the year, but fall produce and especially pumpkins make everything better!

So in this round-up, I’m bringing you some of my favorite vegan pumpkin recipes from Pumpkin Basil Pinwheels (perfect for parties!), Pumpkin Nuggets (great for kids to snack on or in tacos), to the more comforting dishes like Pumpkin Lasagne and Pumpkin Goulash.

Hokkaido pumpkin is my favorite pumpkin kind and it’s also the most common here in Austria. Acorn squash is a close second (it’s perfect for filling it with couscous, rice or veggies!). Butternut squash is perfect for roasting and dips. There are recipes for all three of these pumpkins in this post.

I’m sure you’ll find some you’ll want to try this fall! The recipes are categorized by

  • soups
  • dips
  • snacks
  • and main dishes

The fact that all of these are SAVORY pumpkin recipes is quite impressive. There's enough pie in the world right now to last years lol. I think those nuggets are at the top of my list, I just cannot resist cute ketchup-worthy finger food :)

See, I didn't even notice? I'm so in my savory-pumpkin-bubble, I didn't even think about sweet pumpkin recipes. Though, I've been meaning to ease my way into sweet pumpkin recipes with pumpkin pancakes. :)
