Since I was waxing poetic about my undying love for Libbyâ€™s canned pumpkin (yes, there is a pumpkin shortage, and yes, itâ€™s not seasonal in some parts of the countryâ€¦ Iâ€™m so jealous!) last night, I thought Iâ€™d share with you my Top 5 Pumpkin Recipes. Because pumpkin isnâ€™t just for pie!
FIVE: Pumpkin Dip <â€”Not an original recipe but epic enough that it deserves a shout out.
THREE: Sweet Breakfast Burrito
Delicious, huh? Now do you see why I love pumpkin so much? It can be savory; it can be sweet; it can be a snack; it can be a meal! Long time pumpkin!
And although itâ€™s not available in Charlotte yet, I thought Iâ€™d celebrate my love for pumpkin this morning with another great Code Orange breakfast featuringâ€¦.
To make a simple mashed sweet potato for use in a breakfast bowl, wash the sweet potato, stab it with a fork, wrap in a wet paper towel, and microwave for 5 minutes or so. Carefully peel off the skin and cut into cubes, and then pop in the freezer for five minutes or so to cool it off quickly.
Served with Honey Green Yogurt, Go Lean cereal, and chia seeds:
Have a wonderful day!
