It is cold, windy, wet and miserable at the moment and there is nothing quite like a warming healthy meal to drive away these colds and sniffles. Soup is what we need, but it is not always practical to carry around with you, So here is an alternative solution, which is a variation on an old classic flavour combination!
Autumn has definintely set in now. It's getting colder, damper and many patients report an increased craving for warming, starchy foods. The cold and flu viruses are creeping up and it's time to boost the immune system.
I love roasted pumpkin and squashes, they are nature's autumn and winter treats. A friend of mine grows some spaghetti squashes for me specially on his allotment, but you can use any pumpkin/squash for this recipe. Some veg suppliers also have them at the moment!
Pumpkins are some of our superfoods, they are full in beta-carotenes (a powerful antioxidant), fiber, B Vitamins, Magnesium and Potassium.
