Pumpkin is a great source of beta-carotene, which converts into vitamin A in our bodies, helping strengthen our vision. The other vegetables provide nutrients and the tofu provides calcium and protein. 

This is a great option to serve for vegans at your event. If you don't like tofu and are not vegan, you can use chicken or turkey instead.
