This easy pumpkin dinner recipe with broccoli might demand you a bit of cutting and dicing, but believe me, the result is worth the work. You can, however, use your food processor to shred and cut the veggies.
I sauteed the broccoli apart to avoid overcooking them and I wanted to maintain their green color. However, you can cook the broccoli with other ingredients, to facilitate your work.
This easy pumpkin recipe with broccoli is high in proteins from tempeh and chickpeas. You have a high amount of dietary fiber, minerals, and vitamins, which makes this recipe a whole meal on its own.
Is soy healthy?
I know you might have questions regarding soy food. To assure you, soy if not GMO, and if it's organically grown has no side effect on our health.
In some studies on soy, it was concluded that;
"In general, a reduction in thyroid cancer risk of 35 to 55% was associated with increased consumption of nonfermented traditional and nontraditional soy-based foods and sprouts. Consumption of foods with added soy flour or soy protein was not associated with risk." from the American Association for Cancer Research.
"Isoflavones (IF) such as genistein are cancer-preventive phytochemicals found in soy and other legumes. Epidemiological studies point to a reduced risk for hormone‑dependent cancers in populations following a typical Asian diet rich in soy products" MDPI
