A few months ago, I wrote about how pumpkin is one of the few desserts that is really hard to find in the US.
But that’s changing.
I spoke with Dr. Michael Horsley, a nutritionist and author who is a senior lecturer in nutrition at the University of Bath, and asked him about why many of these recipes are actually quite tasty.
Horsley explained that while pumpkin is not a good source of calories, it does have some of the most wonderful qualities of the vegetable.
The pumpkin seed contains the essential amino acid lysine, which is known to help your body to process nutrients like protein and carbohydrates.
It also contains iron, which can help protect your bones from damage caused by infections, and zinc, which has been shown to boost your immune system and reduce inflammation.
As for the dessert, Horsleys explanation was simple: Pumpkin, like many other vegetables, has a sweet-tart flavor.
Horskins research has shown that when you cook it, it takes on a very different texture, with its crunchy, slightly bitter taste.
He added that there are also many other nutrients contained in pumpkin that are more desirable for human consumption, such as vitamins A, B and C, vitamin E and potassium.
As a general rule, if you want to cook the perfect pumpkin pie, you can get a good recipe from a local supermarket, Hensley said.
“But for desserts, you need to look beyond the supermarket to make sure that you’re cooking it the right way,” he said.
So what are the best pumpkin desserts?
The recipes in this post were inspired by Horssey’s research.
While I personally don’t think these are all of the best recipes out there, I wanted to share a few favorites.
Bread pudding: The most traditional pumpkin dessert is a classic “bread pudding,” which is a pudding made with a blend of pumpkin and sugar.
The best recipes I’ve found for this style of dessert are the ones from Desserts of the World , by Deborah Janson.
It includes ingredients like dried pumpkin, pumpkin seed, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Sausage and cheese puddings: Another popular pumpkin dessert recipe is a sausage and cheese pudding made from the pumpkin puree.
In this version, the pumpkin is cooked with spices and herbs and then the cheese is whipped in a sauce.
Vegetable and cheese tartare: Similar to a sausage pie, this recipe uses a blend, like pumpkin and yogurt, for the filling.
This is a variation of the traditional pumpkin pie.
This recipe is also available in the book The World’s Favorite Pies by Sarah Tompkins.
It calls for pumpkin purees, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon, and walnuts, and it also uses dried pumpkin and pumpkin seeds.
