Creamy Pumpkin Puree with Mushrooms and Garlicky Pumpkin Oil: a 15 minutes easy recipe for a seasonal vegetarian dinner, packed with fall flavors.Who doesn’t like mashed potatoes? I loved them as a child and I still love them now. I was looking for a lighter version of it and I’ve got a very easy solution: creamy pumpkin puree! I used it as a side to my favorite “go-to” 5-minutes creamy mushrooms recipe, which goes well with any grains, pasta or vegetables. It turned out to be a comforting seasonal meal, which takes 15 minutes to make, if you have pre-roasted your pumpkin or use pumpkin puree! If you are looking for quick seasonal dinner ideas, here you go: roast your pumpkin in the oven as shown here or here and make new healthy seasonal dishes every day! Here are some good examples:

Well, I don’t have to tell you how awesome pumpkin is. I wish it could be in season all year round. There is so much you can do with it, be it breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or dessert!
