5 (Foreign) Pumpkin Recipes You Haven’t Tried

Bless October! It’s time to give thanks to pumpkin-flavoured-everything. Although you may be tempted to reach for that pumpkin spice donut, we suggest trying these 5 exotic dishes instead.

1. Chinese Style Braised Pork Ribs With Pumpkin

While many enjoy their side of pumpkin with Turkey, I prefer this tantalizing braised pork dish marinated in soy sauce, shaixing wine and then sautéed in black bean garlic sauce.

2. Caribbean Pumpkin and Coconut Cream Bisque

A pumpkin bisque can be considered a bowl of perfection on those chilly autumn nights. Add some coconut milk and herbs to sample the flavours of this beautiful island!

3. Pumpkin-Turkey “Ghoulash” with Caraway Noodles

Known for dense and hearty meals, Hungarians love their goulash. Locals can be seen chowing down on this stew that’s a combination of pumpkin, turkey, potatoes and paprika.

4. Creamy Butternut Squash Casserole with Herbed Breadcrumbs

Curious how the French serve pumpkin on their dinner table? Try this casserole with rice, parmesan and eggs.

5. Squash and Pumpkin Masala 

Perfect for vegetarian and curry lovers alike, this classic masala recipe includes popular Indian spices such as curry, turmeric, cumin and garam masala. The yogurt gives this dish a nice texture and and balances all the flavours.
