2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 Tbsp chopped ginger
Warm oils in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Mix in pineapple juice, brown sugar, lemon juice, garlic and ginger, salt & pepper if desired.
When thoroughly mixed, remove from heat and cool. Use to marinate vegetables as desired.
I have all my veggies washed, chunked etc, and put them all in a big bowl. Cover with marinade, and place in fridge overnight. Stir often.
before supper, thread on soaked skewers, and brush with marinade while cooking.
** If you choose not to skewer veggies, this still works great for oven roasted, or on the BarBQ in an appropriate pan.
*** If cooking in a foil pan on the BarBQ , watch as the sugar & juice will burn if temp is too high..

Surprise! It's Pumpkin Enchiladas

Surprise, It's Pumpkin! Enchiladas
*You'll need to calculate the phe/protein based on what ingredients you use, use meltable lo pro cheese*

PER SERVING (1 enchilada): This wacky-sounding recipe was born after we accidentally used leftover pumpkin in place of refried beans. But it tasted FANTASTIC, so we perfected it, and now we're passing it on!
Ingredients: 2 medium-large corn tortillas (like Mission Super Size)
3/4 cup enchilada sauce, divided
2/3 cup canned pure pumpkin
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup shredded lo pro cheddar cheese
1 slice lo pro cheddar cheese, halved
1 1/2 tbsp. taco sauce
1 tsp. dry taco seasoning mix
Optional: salt, black pepper, chopped scallions
Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bring a pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat on the stove. Add onion and, stirring occasionally, cook until it begins to brown, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add pumpkin, taco sauce, and taco seasoning to the bowl. Mix well. If you like, season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside. Spray a small baking dish with nonstick spray and set aside. Warm tortillas slightly in the microwave. Lay tortillas flat on a clean, dry surface. Spread 2 tbsp. enchilada sauce onto each one. Place a half-slice of cheese in the center of each tortilla. Evenly distribute the pumpkin mixture between the centers of the tortillas. Wrap tortillas up tightly and place them in the baking dish with the seam sides down. Cover with remaining 1/2 cup enchilada sauce. Bake in the oven for about 8 minutes, until enchiladas are hot. Carefully remove dish from the oven, and sprinkle enchiladas with shredded cheese. Return to the oven and bake for another 5 minutes, or until the cheese has melted. Plate those babies and, if you like, top with scallions. Enjoy! MAKES 2 SERVINGS
