Directions

  1. Steam the pumpkin pieces for 5 to 10 minutes. Scoop flesh from skins.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the pumpkin flesh and sugar. Heat over medium-low temperature until sugar dissolves into the pumpkin. Add coconut and cardamom. Stir often. Cook until the mixture has thickened to thick pudding-like consistency.

This was so good! I used a can of pumpkin puree instead of a whole pumpkin and reduced the amount of sugar a bit. The cardamon gives it a nice "chai" flavor. I keep telling myself it's low-fat, but I'm not really sure!

This was delicious! Everyone enjoyed it, including my kids. Following the advice of the other reviews I used less sugar (only half the amount called for). I also added 1/2 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut to it to thicken it up a bit and then toasted some coconut with a little sugar to put on top. Fantastic!
