Tis the season to be pumpkin!
Everywhere you look, pumpkin this, pumpkin that. But what always disappoints me is that it’s actually “pumpkin pie spice” flavored. These recipes don’t usually have PUMPKIN in them. Just nutmeg/cinnamon/cloves to EMULATE the taste of pumpkin pie.
I feel this is deceptive. I LOVE the subtle taste of pumpkin. So I’m jumping on the pumpkin bandwagon, but I’m gonna be LEGIT. None of this ‘pumpkin pie spice’ propaganda. I’m talkin’ LEGIT pumpkin recipes that I’ve created over the years, plus how to roast your own pumpkin.
Pumpkin is one awesome gourd. Not only is it delicious, colorful and naturally sweet, it’s also fairly low in carbs. Here is a collection of low carb pumpkin recipes, many of which are also gluten free pumpkin recipes.
First, here is an easy way to bake and collect fresh pumpkin. Of course, opening a can of pumpkin is easier but if it’s fall, there is something fun about baking your own pumpkin (and roasting the seeds) and using fresh pumpkin in your low carb pumpkin recipes.
