A Tasty Pumpkin-Potato Mash Recipe
Mashed potato is a staple food supplement, especially for Thanksgiving, between butter and cream, but a side dish that can certainly pack the calories. But if you still fancy a porridge for your table that does not consist of sweet potatoes, this hearty pumpkin porridge is the perfect alternative!
This pumpkin and potato porridge is one of many creative recipes that you can prepare with canned pumpkin remnants. It is safe to say that pumpkin canned food is popularly used to make pumpkin pie or even pumpkin cheesecake, but it does not have to be the only pumpkin recipe you can make with it! Pancakes, chilli and even Pad Thai are delicious dishes that you can use to prepare the cans in the fridge.
Pumpkin protects the skin
Did you know that Pumpkin can protect your skin from the sun's UV rays? This is true! Pumpkin contains beta-carotene, a carotenoid that turns your body into vitamin A. Because vitamin A promotes healthy skin production, eating squash can actually help with this entire process. That sounds like an even better excuse to prepare this Pumpkin and Potato Porridge for Thanksgiving this year!
Preserve these pumpkin seeds
Pumpkin seeds are actually full of protein and are one of the foods for dry winter skin! You can store and roast the pumpkin seeds for a simple snack and even add different flavors for a more delicious afternoon pick-me-up.
