Pumpkin spread with spicy gomasio

No autumn without a pumpkin recipe!

High time for the pumpkin spread recipe!

It feels like autumn is already coming to an end. The leaves are swirling through the air, the first trees are standing without leaves in the forest and the air is getting cooler and cooler. Pumpkins are in peak season and will continue to accompany us for the next few months, stored in a cool place.

A good alternative to cheese

We usually eat bread and cheese in the evening and a salad with it. Sometimes a soup. Since our cheese consumption is very high and we want to reduce our dairy product consumption further, I am always trying new alternatives.

Meal Prep – the pumpkin spread is made for it!

If you are making oven vegetables (keyword mealprep), you can of course also just roast the hokkaido. The recipe also tastes delicious with this pumpkin puree. This saves you a lot of time!

Plus: Pumpkin spread is really tasty and not only fits to bread and crackers, but also in a bowl or with a salad. It shines wonderfully from the table and makes really good mood.

Check out the recipe for the spicy Gomasio here! It is made in no time and goes well with so many dishes. It spices up any soup, tastes great sprinkled over salad and adds depth to dishes.

Alternatively to the spicy Gomasio you can use some Liquid Smoke for the smoky taste.
