My Glasgow Kitchen

My Little Corner of the World

I bought a few pumpkins during the lockdown period and came up with numerous recipes for it. One plus point is that is can be stored at room temperature for 1-3 months.

It is a healthy vegetable/ fruit and is rich in antioxidants and vitamins. It is also relatively low carb and calorie.

Most of my pumpkin recipes are savoury as I am trying to reduce added (refined) sugar overall.
