Basically just a crustless pumpkin pie, this delicious baked pudding takes advantage of some off-the-shelf ingredients: canned pumpkin pie mix and refrigerated egg substitute. Once the ingredients are assembled (there are only four of them!), it should take only 5 minutes to put the pudding together. The rest is unattended cooking in the oven. Serve the hot pudding with a dollop of lightly sweetened fat-free sour cream or a scoop of low-fat vanilla frozen yogurt.

However, some foods – like canned beans – can hike up sodium levels. If you are carefully watching your sodium, be sure to read this before preparing this recipe: Sodium Intake and Salt in Recipes
