pumpkin pilaf

It's pumpkin season and this year you can bring the great taste of autumn to your table with Swanson Pumpkin Pilaf. This savory, filling dish works either as a side dish or as a light, vegetarian-friendly main dish. With fresh pumpkin and bulgur wheat, this pilaf packs in the flavor without packing on the calories. 

Pumpkins are an excellent source of nutrition. They deliver fiber and vitamin A. If your collection of pumpkins has already been reserved for jack-o-lanterns, you can use canned pumpkin instead. While traditional pilafs are made from rice, ours features bulgur. Made from wheat, bulgur delivers more fiber and protein than rice and is lower on the glycemic index. Bulgur has a mild, nutty flavor and is a common ingredient in Middle Eastern cuisine. Swanson Organic Curry Powder, a blend of spices that includes turmeric, coriander, cumin, fenugreek, cardamom, cloves and more, gives this pilaf a slightly zesty Indian flavor. Swanson Organic Cinnamon Sticks add a soft hint of cinnamony sweetness. 

A perfect dish for pumpkin-lovers, Swanson Pumpkin Pilaf is a hearty and flavorful way to use this fall favorite!
