This week marked the official start of autumn. With the equinox, the drawing in of the days, and the cooling temperatures, the seasons have certainly turned. And though we’re saying goodbye to the long bright days of summer, we’re also saying hello to the cold and cosy nights that autumn will bring.

So to celebrate the start of the new season, we thought we’d share a selection of recipes from one of the most autumnal foods imaginable: the humble pumpkin. From warming soups to indulgent pies, we’ve featured everything you need to make the most of this spooky and delicious winter squash. Enjoy!

 Pumpkin soup for a simple and warming dinner (from BBC Good Food).
 1-pot pumpkin curry for a quick but satisfying weekday meal (from Minimalist Baker).
 Pumpkin cake, because everybody loves cake (from Coeliac UK).
 Gluten free pumpkin pie, for those special occasions when a cake just isn’t fancy enough (from Jamie Oliver).
 Creamy pumpkin pasta for an unapologetically comforting meal (from Spend With Pennies). Note: this recipe can be made gluten free by substituting the pasta and flour.
– Another pumpkin soup, because pumpkins make great soup! (From Recipetineats.)
