My favorite Fall ingredient is Pumpkin. I enjoy using plain pureed pumpkin in many different recipes.
I love it for a few reasons: It is high in fiber, packed with wonderful nutrients, it can replace fats in many recipes and for those who do not enjoy vegetables it is a great way to get those nutrients sneakily into their diet.
There are two main options on how to get your pumpkin puree. You can buy canned, plain pureed pumpkin. Watch the label however as it is not the same as pumpkin pie filling. The other option is buying pumpkins, cutting them in half, taking out the seeds and baking them at a low heat over a long period of time. From there you can remove the fresh pumpkin with a spoon.
