The BEST Vegan Pumpkin Recipes


It’s Fall, y’all! Alright, now that that’s out of our systems, let’s get to one of our favorite parts of this magical season: the food! Fall is the perfect time to bake up a storm and use fresh, local ingredients. Not to mention, fall season recipes are nothing short of delicious. I mean, what could possibly be more comforting than a slice of pie alongside that pumpkin spice latte? Nothing that we know of, that’s for sure! In this one, we’re sharing the best vegan pumpkin recipes with you, love. And trust us, they’ll have you wishing it was fall all year long.

First thing’s first: Here’s why pumpkin is so stellar for you…

… And why you should incorporate it into your recipes long after Halloween has passed.

Not only is pumpkin a crazy delicious ingredient to include in your plant-based diet, it is also highly nutritious for you. And if you’re not plant-based? That’s cool, too. Using this not so common veggie in your everyday cooking habits will spice things up, pronto.

Loaded with Vitamins E and C, iron and folate, pumpkin can help boost your immune system and give you glowing skin. What’s more, it contains a significant amount of potassium which is essential to keeping your heart healthy. Pumpkin seeds even contain amino acids which can help your body produce serotonin. Not only does serotonin make you happy as a clam, it can also contribute to better sleep quality. Impressive, right? Yeah, we thought so too.

Now that you’re all brushed up on the benefits of pumpkin, here are our go-to fall recipes that will make it easy peasy to include this superstar vegetable into your diet!

Vegan Pumpkin Bread

The recipe your whole family will look forward to every time fall rolls around.

Moist, nutritious, and comforting AF – this is one bread recipe that has pumpkin as its star ingredient. What’s more, it pairs perfectly with your morning (or afternoon!) cup of tea or coffee. Many say that this recipe mimics the Starbucks pumpkin bread – except it’s better!

Spicy Pumpkin & Carrot Soup

Fall is the time to load up on nutritious and hearty soups. Incorporating some nutrient dense pumpkin into your soup recipes will not only make your tastebuds sing. It will also keep you fuller for longer and give your bod more of those glorious Vitamins we talked about at the beginning of this blog.

We love this spicy pumpkin and carrot soup option that packs all the orange and all the nutrients you need this fall season.
