Bought a pumpkin in the last grocery shop and not sure what to do with it? There’s so many options, you can turn it into something savoury or sweet, blitz it into soup or roast it into salads. We’ve gathered five of the most delicious recipes to feed the family, and they all involve… you guessed it… pumpkins!

Creamy Coconut Pumpkin Soup

Everyone loves a pumpkin soup, right? Well this recipe gives it a fun twist with coconut milk. It’s packed full of flavour, and freezes well too.

  • Just so hard to cut pumpkins, but great recipe ideas.


  • We love roasted pumpkin in our house. Dice then drizzle it with oil and sprinkle on turmeric, paprika and rosemary. My kids even love it cold the next day. With leftovers – it’s great to put on pizzas and really good in pastas too.


  • Pumpkin and potato mash is a great variation for shepherd’s pie.


  • Great ideas. Love the idea of pumpkin Mac & cheese!!

  • Pumpkin is such a versatile vegetable. I sometimes mix it with mashed potato for a colour change and I also add it to my dog’s food. Not only does it make her food go further, it also tricks her into thinking she’s getting more than usual.

    • As kid we used to love “orange potato” mash!!
