What vegan recipes can I make with pumpkin?
If you can dream it, you can make it, and just add pumpkin this fall season! Pumpkin is a winter squash with a mild flavor. It can easily adapt to many different dishes and courses. It can also be easily substituted for other autumn squashes and vegetables like sweet potato. Use fresh pumpkin or a can of pumpkin (just be sure to use pumpkin puree) not pumpkin pie filling! Incorporate some of these recipes with your leftover pumpkin from your holiday pumpkin pie!
What does pumpkin do in baking?
Pumpkin is an excellent ingredient to use in vegan baking. It can be used as a substitute for fat such as oil or butter. It also adds moisture, and sweetness to your baking recipes. Not only that it tastes fantastic and adds that autumn flavor to all your favorite baking recipes.
