24 Delicious Savory Pumpkin Recipes for Fall

I love pumpkin flavored sweet treats, but I also like to use pumpkin in savory recipes. A lot of people don’t tend to use pumpkin in savory dishes but they are missing out. Pumpkin puree is delicious in everything from pastas to soups to casseroles, it lends a subtle sweetness that is the perfect counterpoint for salty Parmesan or spicy pepper. Here are some delicious ways you can use pumpkin in your savory meals this season. Imagine creamy pumpkin potato salad, a creamy pumpkin sauce over pasta, or a smooth pumpkin dip for an easy appetizer. These are all delicious and so easy to make!
