Nutritional values

Orange foods contain beta-carotene, which is converted into vitamin A in our body which helps support healthy skin and vision.

Pumpkins are a good substitute for squash, but make sure they are baking pumpkins, such as the Sugar Pumpkin. Delicato squash is also a good choice.

Preparation steps

1.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Rinse the squash, pat dry, quarter lengthwise, and remove the seeds. Wrap the squash in the bacon, and place on a baking sheet. Add the bay leaves to the pan. Halve the garlic and add to the pan. Season the squash with pepper, and roast for 45 minutes until soft.

2.

Toast the pumpkin seeds in a dry pan. Remove the squash from the oven, and sprinkle the pumpkin seeds over the stop. Sprinkle with sea salt. This goes well served with a tomato salad.
