23 Creative Vegan Pumpkin Recipes

It’s fall, which means pumpkin season has returned. Everywhere, people are adding canned pumpkin to their normal meals and ‘autumn-izing’ them. Oatmeal because ‘Pumpkin Spiced Oatmeal’, Brownies become ‘Pumpkin Brownies’. It’s like this gourd is a magical device that transforms anything it touches into a ‘fall delicacy’.

Honestly it’s a little annoying. No wonder there are so many memes making fun of pumpkin season. I love pumpkins and all, but it seems like the only recipes people can come up with for pumpkins are desserts. I don’t want to make the same old pumpkin muffins and pumpkin smoothies. So I came up with a list of new options, a wider range of options, that call for pumpkin. Appetizers, breakfasts, and even some dinners! One of the best parts is that these recipes call for canned pumpkin, so no need to go to a pumpkin patch to enjoy these 23 recipes!
