The kids love Mondays as I feel inspired to experiment in the kitchen and create new recipes. This one was dubbed the “best one yet” so I hope it lives up to expectations.
Pumpkins (and in fact all orange vegetables) are high in carotenoids and these are converted in our body to vitamin A. Vitamin A is important for healthy eyesight AND it helps fight infections.
Onions are rich in phytonutrients (compounds made by plants) which are a hot topic in nutrition at the moment. Phytonutrients are being studied for their potential to prevent disease and they are already known to help our immune system.
I took the inspiration for recipe from something my husband cooked up when we were staying on the West Coast one winter. His meal was cooked on the stovetop, but I have used the oven – mainly because it is less labour intense 🙂
