And if you're looking for a Thanksgiving side dish featuring pumpkin, try the pumpkin casserole or roasted pumpkin with feta and honey.
When it comes to these savory pumpkin recipes, some call for fresh pumpkin, while others use pumpkin puree. (Just be sure to avoid a can of pumpkin pie filling which is sweetened with sugar and spices.) Either way, these pumpkin recipes deserve a spot on your dining table.
