Don’t like cilantro? It might be genetic. Some people may have a gene causes cilantro to taste like soap. Feel free to leave it out or substitute another herb.

Canned pumpkin is a great source of vitamin A and fiber, but double check the can before you buy it. Make sure you’re buying pure canned pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling (or else you’ll end up with a very sweet sauce!) You can also make your own pumpkin puree by slicing a pumpkin in half, scooping out the seeds and roasting it at 400 F for 30 to 45 minutes. Once cooled, scoop the flesh into a food processor, puree and use as directed.
