1 point pumpkin pie
1 15oz can pumpkin
1 can evaporated skim milk (12oz)
3/4 cup egg substitute or 3 egg whites
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp. pumpkin spice
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup splenda or sugar to taste
Combine all ingredients and beat until smooth. Using a whisk works great. Pour into a 9" sprayed pie pan (glass works best). Place pie plate in a 15" x 10" baking pan; add 1/2 inch of hot water (4-6 cups of water does the trick)
Bake at 350 for 50-55 min or until a knife inserted comes out clean.
Whole pie 8 pts or 1 pt for 1/8th pie. If you use sugar it would be 2pts per serving.
Top with a little fat free cool whip for even more of a treat! Counts as a veggie serving and is high in fiber!
This stuffing is infused with the wonderful flavors of sage and chive. Whole wheat bread adds lots of healthy fiber!
1 spray - cooking spray
12 slices whole-wheat bread, cubed*
2 tsp olive oil
2 tsp light butter
1 cup onion, diced
3 med stalks celery, diced
2 tsp dried thyme
2 tsp dried sage
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
2 cups chicken broth
2 TBSP chives, fresh, chopped
Preheat oven to 350. Coat a 4 quart shallow baking dish with cooking spray.
Arrange bread cubs on a large ungreased baking sheet in a single layer ( use 2 baking sheets if there is not enough room)
Bake until lightly toasted, about 8-10 min. Remove bread from oven and set aside. Leave oven set to 350
Meanwhile in a large skillet over med-high heat, heat oil and butter together. Add the celery and onions; saute' until soft about 3 min (I also add mushrooms). Add the thyme, sage, salt and pepper and stir to coat. Cook until herbs are fragrant, approx 1 min.
Transfer onion mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add bread, broth and chives; toss to combine. Spoon mixture into prepared baking dish and cover with foil; bake 20 min. Uncover and bake until top is golden brown, about 15 min. Divide into 8 pieces and serve.
*Leave the bread bag open and somewhat uncovered for 1-2 days at room temp before making recipe.
Feel free to substitute your favorite bread, whole grain, sourdough or a light variety (this could affect the pts value)
For added flavor add about 1 cup of diced granny smith apples ( could affect the pts value).
You can make this in advance and bake it just before serving. The stuffing will last 3 days in the refrigerator or 3 months in the freezer. If frozen, thaw before baking.
