Pumpkin varieties grown specifically for cooking
are called “pie” or “sugar” pumpkins. They have a smaller seed cavity, more
flesh, and are less stringy. Your natural foods grocer or local vegetable
market will most likely have the best selection. It is easy to recognize them
because they are smaller, heavier, and have thicker stems. Patti Bess’s article “Must
Pumpkin Always Be Pie?” appeared in an issue of Vegetarian Journal and features a variety of pumpkin-based vegan
recipes. Enjoy Lemony Lentils with Pumpkin; Pumpkin with Black Beans; Braised
Pumpkin; Cream of Tomato and Pumpkin Soup; and Stuffed Pumpkin.
