When talking about pumpkins, you probably think about pumpkin spice coffee, candles, or pumpkin pie. However, my favorite way to enjoy this seasonal vegetable is to make it salty instead of sweet.

Savory pumpkin recipes may be lesser known than their sweeter alternatives, but things like pumpkin soup and pumpkin ravioli are seriously yummy options.

Plus, you probably never knew that your dog can enjoy the seasonal fall flavor, too!

That being said, these three savory pumpkin recipes are so good that you’ll want to keep them all for yourself. Or if you’re feeling generous, you can share with your human friends and family members.

The first savory pumpkin recipe involves fashioning pumpkin into delicious, baked French fries with the help of a little seasoning.

The second recipe featured in the video below utilizes pie crust, but, as you can probably guess, the final result is not going to be the sweet, classic pie. Instead, this pumpkin pinwheel recipe uses the flavor of pumpkin puree and basil to make the perfect afternoon snack or appetizer.

Last but certainly not least, the recipe for pumpkin linguine will steal the show at dinner time. Of course, the fact that the recipe calls for bacon doesn’t hurt in making a dish an especially tasty crowd-pleaser.

These savory pumpkin recipes are easy enough for anyone to try and guaranteed to open your eyes to a whole new world of pumpkin possibilities.
