Pumpkin / Squash / Sweet Potato Recipe
This recipe is great for a couple of different things. It is fast, simple, and delicious. I, like my grandmother, do not tend to measure anything. I go by taste and sight.
The benefits: Pumpkin is good for the lung and phlegm. Ginger is very warming, aids in digestion, and great for when you are sick. Cinnamon is very warming, calms the mind, and is great for when you are getting sick (chills etc). Black pepper is also very warming.
- Cold pressed olive oil
- Ginger powder
- Black pepper
- Sea Salt
Cut up your pumpkin / squash / sweet potato. Make sure the pieces are cut as evenly as possible.
In a bowl or ziplock bag add in all of your ingredients. Use enough olive oil to coat all of the pumpkin pieces. Shake/stir until it is well mixed. Occasionally I let it sit for a couple of minutes so all of the ingredients blend together.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a pan lined with aluminum foil (for easy clean up) space out your pumpkin chunks. It is ok if they are touching; you just do not want them to be piled high.
Cook until you can stick a fork through it.
