It is often believed that pumpkin, nutritionally speaking, is like potatoes or sweet potatoes, but that’s not quite right. The nutritional composition of this vegetable is much closer to the other vegetables than to tubers. Pumpkin, in addition of being immensely versatile in the kitchen, is rich in beta carotene, like carrots (that’s why both have the same orange colour). The more colours on the plate, the greater the variety of beneficial compounds!
