Using it all: pumpkin

We have been actively trying to not create any waste when we make our meals. Our latest success has been with pumpkin.
My other half decided to cook a very delicious pumpkin soup with beans blended to add thickness to the soup.
That was dinner. Then instead of throwing the skin and seeds in the compost (which in itself I thing would have been considered 'using' it all up) we then made pumpkin chips from the pieces of skin (which I officially love!) And are currently drying the seeds to eat as a snack (very good for u according to my naturopath). So that's one way of using the whole pumpkin. What do u do with pumpkin or do 'use it all up' with something different?


  1. How do you make pumpkin chips and what do they taste like? You're talking about the entire skin? :-)

  2. ditto--I'd love to know how to make these!

  3. These were easy peasy and so tasty. They're not like crinkle cut chips or anything like that, really just roasted skin if that makes more sense. Using the bits of skin (that was scrubbed and cleaned first) that was cut off the pumpkin, cut into bite-size pieces and then put onto an oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper to season. Pop in a hot oven until the skin starts to get crispy (or to your liking). Let cool a little then munch on down! They're nice dipped in a bit of sweet chilli sauce too
