It’s now officially fall in many parts of the world, and many of us will be on the lookout for some warming breakfast recipe ideas that are both nutritious and seasonal. This pumpkin spiced oatmeal could be just what you’re after.

In the UK alone, it’s estimated that around 24 million pumpkins will be bought this month. The vast majority will be utilized for Halloween, with many families carving them up and using them as decoration. Despite the fact that pumpkins are often regarded as a versatile and nutritious food, around half of the pumpkins we buy will be thrown away without being eaten.

Benefits of pumpkin

Pumpkins are in season right now in many parts of the world, meaning there’s no better time to experiment with cooking them. As well as being tasty, pumpkins are hugely rich in vitamin A, with one cup containing 245 percent of your recommended daily amount. They are also a source of vitamin C, potassium, copper, and manganese.

The below recipe, which comes from World of Vegan, uses pumpkin puree as its ingredient. You can find this in tinned form in many grocery stores, or alternatively make it yourself from scratch at home.
