About this recipe

This pumpkin and greens side dish reminds me of soul-warming days spent at my grandmother's house. I have always relished the taste of her cooking and hope to, one day, pass on her cooking style and kitchen tips to my children. In an age of non-stick cookware, frozen veggies, and microwave meals, traditional recipes may sound like a lot of work, but fear not. This is an easy recipe, and one I often turn to, to rustle up a weekday lunch or dinner.

The Benefits

Pumpkins and their saaga (leaves) are rich in soluble fiber, which can help reduce the risk of cholesterol. They also offer vitamin B6 to soothe joint aches, manganese to manage mood swings, and vitamin A for immunity.

Note: I prefer tender pumpkin leaves since they cook faster. You need about 15-20 young leaves for this recipe.
