Vegetarian recipes and info

Sure, you can buy canned pumpkin, but it’s cheaper, healthier, and tastier to make your own pumpkin purée. All you need is a nice pumpkin (smaller is better), a few common kitchen tools, and some time.
Pumpkins are a key ingredient in some wonderful recipes, notably pumpkin pie and pumpkin soup – not to mention jack-o’lanterns – but what can you do with the seeds? Roast ‘em!
Miso soup, or “miso shiru,” is a typical Japanese soup that comes in many varieties. This one is spiced up with pumpkin, onion, and optional curry powder.
Creamy, rich, and not-too-sweet pumpkin cheesecake is a perfect Thanksgiving dessert.
This spicy pumpkin soup is a good way to use up all of that pumpkin left over from Halloween.
A sweet, creamy blend of pumpkin, tofu, cashews, and banana, topped with candied pecans.
I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love gratins – there’s something about the cheese/bread crumb layer on top that appeals to just about everyone. If this sounds like you, try this tasty way to use up some leftover vegetables.
