Pumpkin puree is a healthy, surprisingly versatile ingredient that doesn’t get enough play (outside pumpkin pies, that is). Plus, it’s a great source of vitamins A, C, and K, as well as fiber. Use the tasty orange goop to make moist, flavorful veggie burgers. It’s a low-sugar, gluten-free way to enjoy the season’s best flavors.
