You can get mixed comments and reactions when it comes to the taste of pumpkin.
Many praise its nice, delicious taste, others say that it is kind of bland or even bitter, however which way it is cooked.
Lovers insist that it’s sweet. Think pumpkin pie, they would say as they protest their case.
It is either you love this vegetable or skip meal whenever it is served on the table. Well, I have news for non-lovers. It is one that you must always have in handy in your refrigerator or kitchen top. In fact, you must consider including it as an ingredient in your meal of only because of its wide range of health benefits.
And of course, I recommend that you include it in your sandwich Panini maker recipe the next time that you concoct a vegetable panino. You might want to check the video at the end of this article. But before you scroll the page down, let us talk about the amazing health benefits of pumpkin.
For one, this vegetable (but technically a fruit, according to Mayo) is a great source of many vitamins, nutrients, and minerals, such as Vitamin E, Vit B6, Vitamin A, Vit C, Niacin, Folate, Thiamin, Magnesium, Phosphorus, and Iron. If you want to add a good amount of fiber in your diet, it is also a great choice. Other important nutrients are Riboflavin, Manganese, and Potassium.
Now, going back to my suggestion that you cook pumpkin using your Panini press grill, turning out a fine, tasty meal.
You may start by cutting a whole into smaller parts, and then cut each part further into slices of about quarter of an inch thick. Then brush the pieces on both sides with margarine or olive oil. And for added flavor, you then sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper.
The latter is optional, especially if you have small kids to serve. In my case, I like cooking this dish with lots of red pepper flakes; this makes it mucho caliente, which is perfectly delectable for me.
As you prepare it, preheat your grill panini press at the same time. Within seven to ten minutes after, your appliance is sufficiently heated. You may now lay the slices onto the grilling plate.
It is best that you use the plate with the ridged surface so that it creates nice charred marks on your pumpkin slices, making them a lot more appealing to eat. You must serve them while hot!
Now, do you know that instead of Italian breads such as ciabatta and focaccia, you may use pumpkin instead? I am not talking about pumpkin bread, the warm, baked treat; but the vegetable itself, the yellowish-orange hued, hard-when-raw, mushy-when-boiled food stuff.
Yes, you may very well do away with the use of traditional Italian breads once in a while and opt for something that’s alternative and unique yet totally delicious. Having second thoughts? Is it really doable? You bet!
