Some time ago I received a question from Health Perch whether I wasn’t interested in writing some recipes with canned pumpkin. Health Perch is an American digital magazine focussing on psychological and mental health. I was very happy to do so and started thinking about some surprising ideas. Things became more complicated in the supermarket. All supermarkets here sell lots of pumpkins, but not in a can… So I figured that I first should make pure mashed pumpkin as a basis for some subsequent recipes.

In fact pumpkins are fruit, not vegetables. Just like tomatoes by the way. They are full of vitamines and low on calories. As far as I know it is not allergic, so everyone can enjoy this super vegetable/fruit. And you can use it in so many surprising creations. From soups and curries to much sweeter combinations in pies, pancakes and muffins.

This is also the main reason why I kept this mashed pumpkin so pure, without adding any flavours. This means you can use it in sweet as well as in savoury dishes.
