Tis the season! With Thanksgiving a couple days away, we’d thought we would share an easy healthy festive side dish that your eyes will enjoy.
Pumpkin is a healthy food especially for the eyes. It is loaded with vitamin A and also provides the eyes with Lutein and zeaxanthin, which is crucial to maintaining eye health.
See below the ingredients and recipe from Steamy Kitchen:
1 small pumpkin or 1/4 large pumpkin1 tablespoon olive oilsea saltground cloveground cinnamonground nutmeg1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
Heat oven to 400F. Using a large metal spoon, scoop out the seeds and insides of the pumpkin. Save the seeds for roasting. Use a sharp chef’s knife to cut slices of pumpkin, about 1-inch thick.
Place pumpkin slices on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and rub on both sides of pumpkin. Season with salt, spices and brown sugar. Roast for 20-25 minutes, depending on thickness of pumpkin slices.
(Same technique can be used for butternut squash or any other type of large, hard squash.)
