The Speckled Jack-O-Lantern Pumpkin Pudding

What you need: 

   15 oz can pumpkin
   3/4-1 package silken tofu
   1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice or equivalent
   1/4 cup sweetener (+or-)
   1 teaspoon vanilla
   1/2 teaspoon salt (opt.)
   mixed nuts or whipped topping equivalent for garnish

What you do: 

Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, in no particular order, and mix together with electric beaters.  If you'd rather, mix all ingredients in a blender.
The pudding will come out with a bit of a speckled appearance from the tofu and pumpkin, but I assure you this is very tasty.  I made it up about a half in hour ago, and if you can find where improvements need to be made, I'd love to hear them.  Since I had no whipped cream replacement readily on hand, I tossed some mixed nuts on top and it was very good.  I hope you enjoy it too !

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Blood Rose 13: Canned pumpkin can be found in any typical supermarket -- you don't need to go to a special store. Usually it is stocked in the canned fruit aisle. Libby's is a popular brand, at least in the US. I haven't made this recipe, but I'm sure you could use fresh pumpkin if you have the time to cook it. Canned pumpkin simply saves a LOT of time. If you do look for canned pumpkin, make sure it is NOT pumpkin pie filling -- that is different than canned pumpkin, but they are often sold side by side.

Nkace: No, if you use the canned pumpkin, you do not have to cook it, but as mentioned above, you will have to cook it if you decide to use fresh pumpkin.

I hope this helps!

This is extremely similar to a recipe I just made. I can't have sweetners right now, so I used amazake and the result was lightly sweet. I didn't add vanilla but I will remember to do that next time! When I can have sweetners again I'll try yours with some rice syrup or brown sugar.

BTW I ate mine as a pudding, but it also was EXTREMELY delicious as a bread spread.

This was delicious.  I like mine a little sweeter, so while mixing, I tasted and added 1/4 cup sugar along with the 1/4 cup sweetener.  I found a vegan whip cream and sprinkled on chopped pecans.  Very pretty, too.
