The Everyday Squash Cook
The Most Versatile & Affordable SuperfoodPaperback - 2014
"Pumpkin, butternut, acorn, pattypan, zucchini, kabocha, hubbard, and spaghetti squash -- the variety of squashes is only surpassed by the number of ways you can enjoy their taste and nutritional benefits. Pumpkin seeds are loaded with zinc, magnesium, vitamin E and healthy oils. One medium-sized zucchini has as much potassium as an average banana, and more than a cup of fat-free milk. Cucurbitacins, found in many types of squash, are powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. There is promising research, too, supporting their anticancer properties. Canned pumpkin has more than 750% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin A in less than one cup, more than nearly any other natural food. Forget the mushy side dish you may be accustomed to eating at holiday dinners. You can make delicious sundae toppings, pancakes, muffins, breads, soups, dips, risotto, burgers, casseroles -- and an incredibly easy butternut 'bacon' that you'll want to eat every day. Also includes tips on handling, cutting and storing squash and a handy visual guide to the most common varieties. With a foreword by Prince Edward Island chef Michael Smith. Author Rob Firing is an avid home cook and occasionally successful gardener. Ivy Knight is a chef and food writer"--Provided by publisher.
