Did you know that Pumpkin is full of fiber and Vitamin A, and is packed with Beta Carotene? When I replace eggs and oil in recipes with pumpkin puree, I am not only reducing the fat content, but I am adding nutritional content to my dishes!
You can also stir a little pumpkin puree into jarred or prepared sauces to help reduce the amount of sodium in each serving.
See, I told you that pumpkin is a super food!
