I have some pumpkin left over that I need to use, and I saw a jar of pumpkin tomato sauce somewhere, and it was this beautiful color, but it had two issues. One was the price, and two it had cream or cheese, or both. But I think of that sauce all of the time because the color was so beautiful. It was a vibrant orange-y red, like that perfect fall leaf. I might put on my creative hat and try to make that sauce the way I like things, cheap, and vegan. Fingers crossed it all works out!
