Does anyone have any great pumpkin recipes? I was thinking something with shredded pumpkin and almond butter. I dont know how that would taste, but I am willing to give it a try.
I was also thinking of making a raw soup with pumpkin and coconut. Similar to the one my husband makes when the food is cooked.
Does anyone else have any other suggestions?

Teresa, you can make pumpkin bread. It is made with soaked barley, sprouted wheat and pumpkin as the base. I have not made it, but it seems like something that would be well accepted around Thanksgiving. This way you can still have the Thanksgiving spirit with out the Turkey.

One of my all time favorite raw soups is Red Bell Pepper Coconut Soup! I had it at Bonobos in NYC and asked about the ingredients. I went home and experimented and it came out great. ONLY A FEW INGREDIENTS TOO- that's my kind of recipe!!
It's incredibly simple and I think it can be adapted into a Pumpkin Coconut Soup. I don't have exact measurements because I just wing it each time but for 1 serving (multiply as necessary) it's something like this:
2 red, orange or yellow bell peppers (substitute maybe 1 cup of chopped pumpkin?)
Meat of 1 young coconut
Water of 1 young coconut OR 3/4 cup filtered water
Agave to taste
celtic sea salt to taste
maybe pumpkin spices???
Blend it up in a Ktec or Vitamix to get it super creamy. Yummm - perfect winter comfort food. Wish I had some right now!

This seems intriguing. I don't know what I'd use it for, here's a recipe for Almond Pumpkin Seed Pate (http://living-foods.com/recipes/pumpkinpate.html). And here's a recipe for Pumpkin Bread (http://living-foods.com/recipes/pumpkinbread.html).
2 parts water
1 part pumpkin juice
Raw honey (to taste)
Ground cinnamon (to taste)
Ground nutmeg (to taste)
Juice pealed pumpkin in juicer (save pulp for pie, crackers etc.). Add honey and spices. Chill or serve immediately.
By the way, I haven't tried any of these.
