Pumpkin season is slowly but surely coming to an end. But you can even enjoy pumpkins in the spring if you store them well! Spaghetti squash, butternut squash, pumpkins (any many more), can keep for quite a long time –preferably in a cool, dark place. Pumpkins with dents or bruises should be eaten immediately.

For example, pumpkin can be seeded, baked and processed into puree, which can then be used for various recipes. Pumpkin puree can be used to bake an autumn pumpkin pie or to conjure up these delicious vegan pumpkin gnocchi. This recipe for pumpkin gnocchi is a super simple recipe that can be easily modified by adding a delicious sauce, fresh herbs like sage and vegan Parmesan substitute.
