in the kitchen with: best of pumpkin dishes

by Kristina Gill

I love pumpkin — all different types. But my favorite is a pumpkin with a compact flesh, which is very creamy. Over the past few years on In the Kitchen With, we’ve collected quite a few pumpkin and butternut squash recipes that are perfect as these vegetables start showing up in abundance at markets and stores. This week, I gathered the best of pumpkin (or squash) recipes. How will you use your pumpkins, and what are your favorite flavors to pair with them? For me, I look forward to making risotto with gorgonzola or taleggio, and I always make loaves upon loaves of pumpkin bread, and I can’t resist a quick soup made with roasted butternut squash and pureed with other roasted vegetables (recipes below). — Kristina
