15 Fresh Pumpkin Recipes That Go Beyond Pie

Though pumpkin pie is a perennially popular fall dessert, it's not the only way to make good use of this colorful fruit. To that end, we're sharing a selection of recipes made with fresh pumpkin to prepare during the fall and into winter.

Basic Chicken Soup

Rating: 3.5 stars 377
Everyone has their own favorite chicken soup recipe, but rarely have so few ingredients added up to so much comfort. This version has classic flavors and, thanks to a simplified method, cooks more quickly than traditional chicken soups (the dish is ready in a little over an hour). There's no need to make a separate stock; the vegetables and meat form their own satisfying broth.

Baked-Eggplant Parmesan

Rating: 3.5 stars 2559
Choose firm, smooth eggplants for best results when making this incredible dish. We bake rather than fry ours for less mess and less fat.

Everyday Vegetable Soup

Rating: 3.5 stars 1800
This basic vegetable soup can be made with any combination of fresh or frozen vegetables, so the soup will taste a little different each time. The recipe can easily be doubled or even tripled to feed all the vegetable soup fans at your table.

Chicken Fricassee (Fricassee de Poulet a L'Ancienne)

Rating: 3.5 stars 430
Also see our step-by-step photo tutorial for making Chicken Fricassee. A fricassee is halfway between a saute and a stew. A true classic -- with as many variations as there are grandmothers in France -- it relies on humble ingredients and just a single pot. It's the original French comfort food: simmered chicken with hearty vegetables in a rich, silky sauce. And almost as satisfying as the dish itself is having our one-pot master recipe in your repertoire.

Carrot Cake
