Maybe you tend to think of pumpkins as something that go best in pie or spiced lattes. However, a pumpkin can be savory instead of, or in addition to, being sweet. Try making a delicious pumpkin soup with a little cayenne pepper and onions. Top it with roasted pumpkin seeds and wait for your taste buds take off.
