It's that time of year again! If trick or treating is not your thing, get in the Halloween spirit with these five must-try pumpkin dishes instead.

  • Vegetarians love the deep-fried pumpkin korokke at conveyor-belt Japanese restaurant Yo! Sushi. These crispy breaded croquettes are served with a tangy fruit sauce.

    Various locations

  • At casual dining restaurant Busaba Eathai, the aromatic butternut pumpkin curry is served with a side of cucumber relish. Add a side of brown rice if you don't like your curry too spicy.

    Various locations

  • The sweetness of the roasted pumpkin provides the perfect contrast to the chorizo, goat's cheese, red onion and red peppers on this wafer-thin, crispy pizza at Story Deli in East London.

    123 Bethnal Green Rd., E2 7DG; 07918 197352

  • Nothing says Autumn like pumpkin pie. The Hummingbird Bakery makes an all-American version with richly spiced pumpkin filling in a shortcrust pastry base.

    Various locations

  • The roasted duck and pumpkin puffs at Yauatcha are a delicate mix of sweet and meaty flavours - and they even look like mini pumpkins.
