Pumpkin Thyme Sauce

The fall season brings pumpkin-flavored everything! It always inspires me to come up with creative ways to incorporate pumpkin into dishes. This versatile staple will allow you to include pumpkin in any meal.

The recipe makes about two cups of pumpkin sauce. It is great as a pasta sauce, pizza sauce, or even a dipping sauce!

RECIPE
1 15oz can pumpkin purée
1/4 c water
2 tbsp non-dairy butter
2 tsp dried thyme leaves
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg

INSTRUCTIONS
On medium heat, melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the seasonings and water and allow to simmer. Stir in the pumpkin purée. Constantly stir sauce for eight minutes. For a thinner sauce, add more water. Enjoy!

TIPS
  • For a creamier sauce, add 1/2 c alfredo sauce.
  • For some added flavor, substitute water for low sodium vegetable broth.
  • If you are not too fond of thyme, use rosemary instead.
