One of the best ways to ward off the blood sugar spike — and subsequent surge of hunger — that comes along with something starchy is to combine it with a good source of fiber. That’s why we love the idea of mixing in pureed pumpkin into a classic mashed potato dish.
For every pound of potatoes you use to make your favorite recipe, add a cup of canned pumpkin. If you don’t have that much leftover puree lying around, no big deal, just use what you have.
Serve the dish out of a small hollowed-out pumpkin for a festive addition to your fall dinner table.
