Fit Food: The Benefits of Pumpkin

When it comes to fall's power foods, antioxidant-rich pumpkin is tops. Here, some easy recipes for roasting, mashing, and snacking.

Roasted Pumpkin Recipe

For a nutrient-packed side dish, try roasted pumpkin. Preheat oven to 400 degrees, then cut the flesh of one small sugar pumpkin into 2-inch chunks. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, then bake on a baking sheet—or in a roasting pan—for 40 minutes.

You can serve it alone with a drizzle of balsamic glaze (buy it at Trader Joe’s), or toss it into your favorite pasta or risotto recipe.
