Although traditionally served in sweet dishes, pumpkin isn’t actually sweet…Like other squashes it has a neutral flavor. In fact, it’s used more commonly in savory dishes in Asia. (One of my favorite dishes is a pumpkin and hot chile pepper stir-fry). 

Health Benefits Pumpkin

Pumpkin is overflowing with Vitamin A (a nutrient needed for clear skin). One cup of mashed pumpkin provides 245% of the recommended daily value. The same amount delivers 3 grams of fiber and a measly 49 calories. You want a food that will fill you up without filling you out? Add in more pumpkin. 

By adding roasted pumpkin to guacamole, you create a gorgeous and unique guacamole that’s sure to please during the pumpkin season.
