Pumpkin recipes (courtesy of the BBC)

Did you know that pumpkin seeds are high in zinc and a good source of essential fatty acids as well as protein? Pumpkin itself is rich in Vitamin A which is said to be good for maturing follicles and cervical fluid. Here are some pumpkin recipes for once you’ve carved your winning pumpkin for #IFpumpkinsmackdown! I’ve decided to be thoroughly British and link to the BBC.

Pumpkin Recipes

1. Pumpkin Biryani – the desi girl in me appreciates this! Also LOVE how it’s served in a pumpkin. I might have to design a Bollywood pumpkin now.

2. Pumpkin Pie – I’ve never had pumpkin pie. You ladies across the pond must have some brilliant recipes to share for this! Please leave links below if you do.

3. Roast Pumpkin with cream, thyme and parmesan – Said to make ‘a wonderful starter.’

4. Thai Pumpkin Soup – Rated 5 stars with 82 reviews, this has got to be a winner!

Super duper link to more BBC Pumpkin recipes

Pumpkin juice

It was a hit at Hogwarts and it’s probably religiously drunk by Harry Potter fans worldwide. Here’s a recipe for you hardcore juicers – made from pumpkin, apple, pineapple, honey and cinnamon.

We may be quiet but Turtle, Betty and me have been secretly planning the categories along with some small prizes. They may be small but we think they rock. Betty will reveal them soon!

    Yum! Thanks!
    I would add pumpkin and cranberry bread. e.g. http://www.joyofbaking.com/breakfast/PumpkinCranberryBread.html
    Though I don’t have a IF/diet friendly recipe (yet).
    Also, an Italian classic, though not so known abroad: tortelli di zucca (pumpkin ravioli)

    I love cooking with pumpkin! I hardly ever do it though. Last year, I made this pumpkin ice cream:

    Delicious. I want to try the juice!

  5. The Thai pumpkin soup sounds particularly delicious. Can’t wait to try it! We discovered a cute little squash variety a couple years ago that has become one of our favorites. It’s called “patidou” in French and the other day at the market one of the French farmers told me that its English name is “sweet dumpling”. We like to stuff it with lamb sausage and leeks, but you can basically stuff it with whatever you like and pop it in the over at 200ºC for about an hour.

Oh, what a power is motherhood, possessing
A potent spell. All women alike
Fight fiercely for a child.

~ Euripides, Iphigenia in Aulis, c. 405 B.C.
