Hi Meltingpot! Welcome to DC!!

I have a recipe for a pumpkin beer, but that's probably not what you were looking for, huh? (I'm sure this comes as no surprise to the rest of the DC'ers!)

Everything else is pretty much pie type recipes.

John

This pumpkin has heart

Tasty tart. Here's a link to the recipe on TheLoveBite:

I think there's one for pumpkin ravioli there as well. I'll take a look.

Here's the ravioli

I've had this...it's incredible. Not too heavy, but heavy enough. A nice white wine to go with it and you're set.

Pumpkin Gnocchi with Brown Sage Butter is delicious!

I love Pumpkin Soup too and my recipe goes like this:

Fry some finely chopped white onions in butter until soft. Add curry powder/paste to taste and cook for 2 minutes or fragrant. Throw in lots of roughly chopped peeled pumpkin, cover with a good stock ( chicken, beef or vegetable) and simmer until pumpkin is very soft. Puree with stick blender or in batches in the processor. Return to pot and add as much coconut milk as you think you need!! Reheat soup but do not boil. Serve with a drizzle of coconut cream/milk on top and a scattering of chopped cilantro. Goes well with Indian flatbread like naan.

It is imperative that the pumpkin used for soup is very tasty so I always cut a piece off the pumpkin and microwave then taste it to make sure it is fine. Your soup will only ever be as good as the pumpkin tasted!

well, is it a pie? umm, yes, but...

pumpkin quiche can be quite nice.

mashed pumpkin with 3 or 4 eggs, cream (milk, sourcream, yoghurt?) & salt and pepper.
maybe with a layer of browned, sliced onions on the bottom and topped with thick slices of slab bacon and dollops of boursin (sp?) cheese.

Here is a really good Pumpkin and Black Bean Chili that I have made several times - It's become tradition to make it Halloween evening. People know there is something different but they just don't know what!

Pumpkin Soup!

Pumpkin Soup is pretty darned good. You can use canned pumpkin (not the pie filling stuff, just plain pumpkin) or you can de-seed and clean a regular pumpkin (sugar pumpkins, small & compact, not the large jack-o-lantern type). Using fresh pumpkin, peel it (a challenge!) cube it and boil the pieces about 20 minutes until tender. Drain and let cool. Otherwise, use 2 cans of plain pumpkin. Add the cubed pumpkin to 4 cups of chicken or vegetable stock or broth, adding water as needed. Season with salt, generously. At this point I also add a dash of freshly grated nutmeg and about 1/2 tsp. ginger powder and cayenne pepper to taste. Cover and simmer 25-30 minutes to allow the flavours to mesh. Use a stick blender to puree the soup or puree it in batches in a food processor or blender until smooth. For fun you can top this with toasted pumpkin seeds. Serves 8

I make a soup with fresh pumpkin similar to what FraidKnot (Jill's Roasted Butternut Squash Soup) does in her roasted butternut squash recipe. Makes it easier and you don't have to try to peel it before roasting it. I use sage and thyme instead of tarragon though.
