This pumpkin bread can stand on its own—the lone pumpkin in the patch—with only a dollop of vegan cream cheese on top, or can be used in stuffing or as a foundation for desserts. If you're using fresh pumpkin, be sure to save the seeds for roasting.

A few out-of-the-ordinary pumpkin recipes I've stumbled upon are Pumpkin Curry, Sicilian Sweet and Sour Pumpkin—which can easily be veganized—and Pumpkin Chocolate-Chip Squares. Do you have a unique pumpkin recipe to share, too, pumpkin?

•Keep wrapped in the refrigerator.
