Orange is the new..vegetable! Time for Pumpkin and Squash

October 13, 2017

 

 


During this season, gardens and local markets are painted orange and you can find many different kinds of pumpkins and squash, for a low price. Thanks to its sweet and creamy flavour, pumpkins are very versatile, and can be used to create an entire menu, from appetiser to dessert.

 

 

A 100-gram amount of raw pumpkin provides 26 kilocalories of food energy and is an excellent source (20% or more the Daily Value) of provitamin A beta-carotene and vitamin A (53%). Vitamin C is also present in a moderate amount (11%).

Pumpkin is 92% water, 6.5% carbohydrate, 0.1% fat and 1% protein.

 

We present you with this easy recipe:
