10 Delicious Fall Recipes With No Pumpkin Whatsoever, None At All

By  | 

The tyranny of pumpkin at this time of year has gotten to be entirely too much to handle. I actually like pumpkin foods, but pumpkin this and pumpkin that and all the dang SQUEE latte-loving hordes need to take a break, in my opinion. They do know that pumpkin actually is available year round, right? And that fall has a veritable bounty of delicious flavors to enjoy, foods like squash, brussels sprouts, even pear and pomegranate. If you'd like to get in the fall spirit without resorting to using that ubiquitous orange gourd, look no further than these 10 fall recipes that are totally, 100% pumpkin free!
