For nearly two years, I have volunteered with the Social Justice Learning Institute and its monthly Healthy Eating, Active Living workshops. The workshops feature a cooking demonstration, health and nutrition tips and planting and gardening advice. Two years in, it feels like the perfect time to start sharing some of those recipes. It’s October, and both Amir and absolutely love this month. Fall is here, and it ain’t going anywhere anytime soon, so get into it! Of course, the coming of fall means pumpkin recipes pop up everywhere. To avoid pumpkin boredom, use it in a variety of ways. For last weekend’s demo, we made Sugar and Spice Pumpkin Oat Muffins, Roasted Pumpkin, Apple and Dried Fig Salad and Creamy Pumpkin Pasta with Portobello Mushrooms and Peas. Head over to the Farm2Plate Culinary Club site for the full recipe, plus a couple more.
