What makes these Pumpkin Recipes Healthy?
Pumpkin is a super healthy fruit. It entirely depends on how we use it to create recipes. The same pumpkin can make healthy or unhealthy recipes. If you use loads of refined sugar/ cream or extra salt/ sauces, indeed the pumpkin recipes won't have the Health Quotient.
These vegetarian pumpkin recipes have been made using homemade fresh puree (instead of canned) or freshly grated pumpkin and have used sugar, oil/ ghee/ salt only as much as required. They are easily convertible to Vegan Pumpkin recipes.
Savory pumpkin recipes are made using green and dessert ones are made using orange pumpkin.
These recipes don't require many ingredients and can be prepared by using raw pumpkin or pumpkin puree.
Pumpkin puree is obtained by boiling raw pumpkin for a whistle or two in a pressure cooker and then mashing it using a fork (after peeling off the skin) or blending it. This puree remains good for about 3-4 days (in winters) and 1-2 days (in summers) and can be made in advance for planning ahead of the recipe.
Why Pumpkin is a super food?
- Has more Vitamin A than Mango!!
- An immunity-booster food
- Low-calorie humble fruit
- High in fiber makes it a weight-loss friendly food
- Decreases cholesterol levels and balances sugar-level
