Pumpkin Porridge for Wintery Mornings


Pumpkin is my favorite autumn /winter ingredient. Its vibrant orange color is a ray of sunshine on gloomy and cold winter mornings. And there is more to the pumpkin than its beautiful color.

Pumpkin is a highly nutrient-dense food. It is low in calories but rich in vitamins (K, A, E, B6, C) and minerals (potassium, iron, copper, magnesium) and lots of fibre all of which are also in its seeds, leaves, and juices.

Plus, it can be used in various sweet and savory dishes.

My favorite is pumpkin porridge with tahini dressing. We serve it to our guests on wintery mornings. It is not only warming but also delightfully fulfilling and it makes everyone smile.

Here is the recipe for you (serves 4 people).
