Six Recipes to Reuse your Halloween Pumpkin

Six Recipes to Reuse your Halloween Pumpkin

Halloween is over and now you're wondering what to do with your pumpkin after you've carved it.

You can eat it! Here's some recipe inspiration, sweet and savoury. 

If you find that the flesh of your carving pumpkin isn't super tasty, then you'll be less disappointed by the seeds, which are still full of protein and can be crisped up in the oven.

Have you ever bought pumpkin seeds from a supermarket? Chances are they look like these green ones.

But when you come to harvest your pumpkin seeds, they will be a whiteish colour. This is because what you buy in the supermarket is actually the inside of the whole seed that you'd find in your pumpkin. 

It is very tricky, however, to separate this inner kernel from the white outer. 

So your best bet is to boil your leftover pumpkin seeds for about 10 minutes, before popping them into the oven to roast them and get them crispy. 

These roasted seeds will be perfect for topping salads and soups. You could even use them to sprinkle on top of some of the recipes we'll share below.


Aloo Gobi Vegan Curry

If you're looking for a quick curry recipe, then you can swap the butternut squash for leftover pumpkin.

In about 35 minutes you'll enjoying this rich, warming curry, perfect for a mid-week dinner with plenty of flavour. 


Pumpkin Gnocchi


Tesco Real Food

A spooky twist on traditional gnocchi, this recipe can be made vegetarian by swapping out the parmesan. 

This recipe calls for a sage butter sauce, but you could try making these classic sauces to complement your pumpkin gnocchi.

This is a great recipe to try midweek, taking only 30 minutes to cook. 

Try serving with avocado, fresh coriander and some sour cream.
