Two Healthy Fall Season Recipes
Tropical Sweet Potato and Pumpkin Casserole
This is the harvest season with many squash varieties available for healthy fall season recipes. This one uses pumpkin and it can be served for Thanksgiving in place of the sugared sweet potato dish.
- Four baked and skinned sweet potatoes
- The meat from one medium pumpkin boiled or baked
- Fresh grated ginger and tumeric
- Canned or fresh pineapple
Puree the cooked sweet potatoes and pumpkin in a blender with a little pineapple juice. You can substitute orange juice or coconut water. This is your only sugar. Season to taste with spices, including fresh ginger root. You can fold in pineapple chunks or use them to decorate the top. Pour the puree into a casserole dish and heat at 325-degrees just before serving.
You can used canned sweet potatoes and pumpkin but the fresh foods taste better. The ginger and other spices add flavor. You can also use mangoes or papaya instead of pineapple and top it with unsweetened coconut flakes.
Fall is college and professional football time. This chili recipe is filling and it’s great for munching on while watching a football game. Make it in any amount to the delight of your guests.
- One package of dried red beans
- One package of dried black beans
- Two garlic cloves
- Two or more hot chili peppers
- One 32oz can of tomatoes
- Two or more fresh tomatoes
- Fine herb mixture
- One or more onions chopped
The day before cooking, hydrate the beans in a bowl of water to which you have added a pinch of salt, crushed garlic cloves and the cut-up chili peppers. The beans will absorb the heat from the peppers.
A least 12 hours later, drain off the water and rinse beans. Place in a pan or slow cooker and add the tomatoes. Add onions, any vegetables and very lean cooked meat as options. Simmer until the beans are soft. Taste while it is cooking and add herbs and more salt and seasonings if desired. Puree some of the beans in a blender for a thicker sauce. Serve with grated cheese.
This is a low-fat and filling healthy fall season recipe that is an alternative to canned chili, chips and other foods people eat while watching games. You won’t need to order pizza.
