Yay Halloween! Time for costumes and pumpkins and other fun things.

This Halloween was especially fun and we hosted a pumpkin carving party at our place.

Once the jackolanterns have been made, many people just roast the seeds and toss all the guts away.  This is an incredible waste because pumpkin innards are edible and delicious. Making fun things out of them should be an essential part of pumpkin carving!!

After all our pumpkins had been carved, we ended up with 3 giant bowls full of pumpkin pulp (which we pureed in a food processor) . We still have a little bit left in the freezer, but my roommates and I managed to create many different pumpkin creations.

So far, we have made pumpkin soup, pumpkin chili, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin pecan balls, pumpkin hummus.

I even made vegan entrails for our Halloweeen party (and put a few dabs of pumpkin inside). They turned out great!
