What goes well with pumpkins?
Pumpkin goes well with a lot of fruits, veggies, nuts, spices, herbs, dairy, and protein. For fruits, you can find pumpkin treats with blueberry, pear, and cranberry. For vegetable dishes, pumpkins are usually paired with cauliflower, chili peppers, ginger, eggplant, and even celery.
You can also whip up savory pumpkin recipes with proteins such as chicken, bacon, turkey, and salmon. Cream cheese, whipped cream, milk, butter, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, and pecans are also some of the nuts and dairy products often used in all kinds of pumpkin dishes.
On the other hand, spices and herbs like cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg are great with pumpkins too. Most pumpkin dinner recipes below also make use of these ingredients so make sure to check them out!
