#1 Smashing pumpkins
Pumpkin is a type of squash, which is easily worked into curries and soups, mixed with grains and salads, and it is also great on its own. Packed with nutrients, one of the best ways to cook it is by roasting on a low heat until caramelized. Chop into chunks, brush with oil, and then decide to either dust with cinnamon and sugar – or cumin, depending on your mood. Be sure to keep the seeds for a nutritious snack.
Storage: Pumpkins can keep for up to six months once stored in a cool, dark, dry place. Once cut, you can also store fresh pumpkin in your fridge, but it needs to be wrapped tightly in parchment paper/foil.
