How to Cook a Pumpkin

Since the weather is getting a bit chilly these days and Autumn is fully upon us that only means one thing-BAKING! Yay! I’m so thrilled that I can back delicious healthy treats without wheat, sugar or dairy! And they are always amazing, even the not so pretty ones still get gobbled up! I especially like to bake treats with pumpkin. Its super easy to make your own pumpkin puree versus the canned version. So here is your easy peasy how to:


1. Buy a sugar pie pumpkin- they are small, generally not bigger than 4lbs.

2. Put the WHOLE pumpkin inside a pan and cook at 350 for about and hour. After it’s done it should be a bit brown on the outside. Let it cool then peel away the skin.

3. Cut the pumpkin in half and remove the seeds. You can bake the seeds or compost.

4. Cut the pumpkin in pieces and puree in vitamix. I normally then freeze mine in 1 Cup containers and thaw as needed

And viola! Stay tuned for more pumpkin recipes coming your way!
