Upgrade Your Plate: 5 Unbelievably Tasty Things To Make With Canned Pumpkin This Fall

When fall weather makes its appearance you know it’s time to enjoy aromatic spices, comfort food, and all things pumpkin. Embrace your inner foodie and think beyond pumpkin pie. You can easily use canned pumpkin as the main ingredient for some familiar dishes and enjoy some culinary magic. Your taste buds will thank you later for the savory or sweet recipes that you whip up.

A Resplendent Risotto

Pumpkin is a superfood that deserves to enhance the flavors in a filling comfort food dish. Next time you want to enjoy a plate of creamy risotto, add in some canned pumpkin. The flavors will play up nicely with bacon and parmesan cheese, or juicy shrimp for a low-calorie protein.

Perfectly Pumpkin Panna Cotta

If you are a fan of Jello, you’ll appreciate the textures and flavors in a pannacotta beautifully balanced with spices and canned pumpkin. You can boost the wow factor of this dessert by using a topping of crushed ginger snaps, candied orange peels, or a dollop of fresh cream.

Canned Pumpkin Chili

Chili is one of those must-have dishes to enjoy on a crisp fall day. In addition to using an array of vegetables, adding canned pumpkin gives your chili a creamy texture and packs on the nutrients. Consider throwing in some pumpkin ale into your chili, and to enjoy on the side for a decadent experience.

Bite Worthy Biscotti

Fall is the season to warm up with a pumpkin latte, so why not it pair it with some pumpkin biscotti? Biscotti is a sophisticated Italian cookie that is the perfect snack alongside coffee, tea, or cider. Think beyond traditional almond and anise, and make a batch of biscotti using canned pumpkin and walnuts.

Homemade Pumpkin Donuts

If you don’t have time to stop at your local donut shop, try your hand at making donuts at home. Adding canned pumpkin increases the richness of your donut dough, and is the perfect flavor for fall. Get crafty and use some pumpkin cream cheese to frost your donuts, before you drizzle with caramel or icing. Yum!
