Family traditions during the holidays always include a pumpkin – for carving, eating or both! Creamy pumpkin desserts are notoriously high saturated fats, but don’t despair – House Foods Tofu has the perfect way to lighten up your favorite recipes. By incorporating tofu into pumpkin dishes, it makes dessert a better health choice while keeping traditional flavors intact.

 

Pumpkin lovers can rejoice with the new recipe from House Foods – Tofu Pumpkin Bread– a fragrant loaf with spices of cinnamon and ginger. The not-so-secret ingredient is their creamy tofu, which makes a perfect substitute for any dessert. House Foods Tofu is non-GMO verified, kosher, and gluten-free. Available in various firmness ranges, from soft to extra firm, tofu is as versatile as sour cream, mayonnaise or heavy creams.
