Another Pumpkin Recipe! Yay!
Don’t you just love pumpkin? One cup of pumpkin has 7 grams fiber, 2650 IU Vitamin A, 564 mg potassium! It also boasts a truckload of antioxidants like Alpha-carotene and Beta-carotene. What a wonderful winter fruit. Yes, science defines seed-carrying pumpkins as fruit. Not vegetables.
Inspired by the back of a can of Libby’s Pumpkin:
Not-Your-Ordinary Pumpkin Roll
~This pumpkin roll can be used as a breakfast or dessert! It would be a perfect breakfast to impress guests during the Holidays. The recipe is flour-free, grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, and of course, sugar-free!
- 2 eggs
- pinch baking powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon, plus more for garnish
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- Optional: chopped nuts
First, lightly grease a pan for the stove. I used a cast-iron skillet. Next, turn the stove on medium heat. Whisk the eggs, baking powder, and cinnamon in a small bowl, and pour the mix into the skillet. Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes or until it is cooked through. There is no need to flip the crepe. Remove the crepe carefully from the burner and place on a plate:
Next, spread the pumpkin on the crepe. If you wish, you can heat up the pumpkin before spreading it. If you wish to add chopped nuts to the pumpkin, add some now.
Then, roll the crepe, and garnish with an extra scoop of pumpkin, cinnamon, and nuts (if using):
Thought-provoking, mind-prodding question of the day:
Have you made plans for Christmas, or Hanukkah, or another holiday you celebrate yet?
I am so excited to visit my aunt and grandparents in Arizona this Christmas. I haven’t seen them in two years, and am very excited to see them! I’m making them all gifts. I would tell you what they were, but I am afraid they might be reading this! Let me keep it a surprise!
Do you like surprises?
My sister is a big surprise person! She will not let anyone tell her what her gift is, and she will not tell anyone what she made/bought them. It is actually quite fun to tease her with this 😉
