Due to its high potassium content, the Hokkaido pumpkin has a stimulating effect on kidney and bladder activity. At the same time, potassium has a gentle draining effect and balances the natural fluid balance.

For a vegetarian alternative, you can simply fry slices of smoked tofu crisply instead of bacon and deglaze with a little soy sauce.
