Recipe Corner: Slow Cooker Pumpkin Turkey Chili

We just couldn’t wait until 2018 to begin one of our new endeavors: creating a recipe corner of delicious recipes, tested out by our gardeners! 

It can be hard to figure out how to cook fresh produce or veggies that might be new to you. We also know how disappointing it is to grow something from the ground up, only to be less than impressed with the final prepared product.

With that in mind, our Recipe Corner will provide an ever-growing list of crowd pleasing recipes to use with produce grown right in the garden that won’t let you down. Contact us at kmcommunitygarden@gmail.com if you have a recipe to share!

SLOW COOKER PUMPKIN TURKEY CHILI: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/228404/slow-cooker-pumpkin-turkey-chili/

One of our community gardeners, Sharon, grew these beautiful cheese pumpkins this year and gifted one to my family, so I knew I needed to find just the right way to use it. The recipe linked above, complete with both chili powder and pumpkin pie spice, hit all my personal requirements: 1) decadently delicious, 2) ridiculously easy, and 3) filled with veggies and legumes. We skipped the cheese and added cumin, tomato sauce, carrots, and cauliflower. Extra points: I have enough pumpkin to make a second batch for Christmas night!
