It’s time for a super simple and fun fall recipe or two! I'm
all about keeping things seasonal and fresh: so I look for new tastes and treats
whenever I can! Here are two simple autumn recipes that you may want to add to
your own seasonal cookbook.
Pumpkin Quesadillas: now these are great for a quick
appetizer, or even a light meatless meal (especially is served with a side salad).
All you need are:
- 2 cups of canned pumpkin puree
½ cup of chopped, toasted walnuts
4 ounces of crumbled goat cheese
8 flour tortillas
1 teaspoon of ground cumin
¼ cup of vegetable oil
In a bowl combine and mix the pumpkin and cumin.
Spread the pumpkin out over 4 tortillas. Sprinkle with your cheese and nuts (adding
more of either, if you'd like). Cover with the remaining tortillas. Warm up 1
tablespoon of oil over a medium-low heat in a skillet or frying pan. Cook your quesadilla,
flipping it once, until both sides are browned (1.5 – 2 minutes per side). Add
more oil between batches. Cut your quesadilla into wedges however you'd like.
Butternut Pudding: this is a super simple and yummy dessert
that takes almost zero prep-time! It’s something unusual to
spice up your regular Sunday dinners or pot luck parties! All you need are:
- 2 10-ounce packages of thawed butternut squash puree
1 14-ounce can of coconut milk
½ cup of pure maple syrup
whipped cream for topping
- Boiling water
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Blend all of your
ingredients together and pour them into an 8 inch baking dish. Place the baking
dish in a roasting pan and fill your pan half way up the baking dish with boiling
water. Bake for one hour. Best served warm with whipped cream on top!
