We’re huge fans of pumpkin! Love it! This veggie is a year-round deal for us. In fact, in our next book we have a number of pumpkin recipes and they’re all to die for! You’ll flip when you try them!It’s hard to believe pumpkin is a healthy, nutrient and fiber- packed veggie when it tastes so scrumptious. We recently saw this Coconut Pumpkin Pie recipe and – oh my! – it’s sooo good!
We found this recipe on the Thai Kitchen website and we substituted regular coconut for their lite version, to keep it light so that you don’t feel weighed down and have plenty of energy this holiday season.
You’ve gotta try this – let us know what you think!
