Instructions for Regular Cook Method
In a medium saucepan, bring 2″ of water to a boil over medium heat. Place the pumpkin into a steamer basket over the boiling water, cover and cook for 15 minutes or until tender.
Add the pineapple, coconut and ginger and steam for an additional 5 minutes. Reserve steamer water.
Transfer all of the ingredients to a blender or food processor and puree in short bursts until you reach ya chunky puree or puree on high for 1-2 minutes for a smooth puree, adding reserved steamer water in 1/4 cup increments if needed.
Coconut: I used toasted coconut for a richer flavor but plain shredded coconut works just as well.
