  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt, optional

Directions

  1. Steam pumpkin in a steamer or microwave until fork tender. Sauté onion and garlic in oil until onion is clear and tender.

    By blending ingredients that have just been cooked and are still hot, the blend time is cut by several minutes, bringing dinner to the table that much quicker!
