Pumpkin seeds and more

Organic seeds (flax, pumpkin, sunflower, sesame), plus almonds give the Seed and Nut Bar, above, from Keep It Real Food its name and also make it look so appetizing.

Pumpkin soup three ways

One of the easiest and tastiest ways to use pumpkin is in soup, and we've got three different versions for you to try.

Pumpkin Seed Oil

La Tourangelle Artisan Oils was established well over 100 years ago, as an animal-powered oil mill in France. Fast forward to today, and the company is making oils in California and has expanded beyond nut oils to seed oils, such as sunflower, sesame, avocado -- and Toasted Pumpkin Seed Oil.

There are many and varied uses for this versatile oil, including:
Italian Style Salsa Verde
Pumpkin Seed Oil Vanilla Ice Cream
Pumpkin Seed Crepes with Salmon Sashimi and Watercress.
