Charles Chen, a Los Angeles-based chef, cooking teacher and wellness coach, personally transformed his health through food. This quick recipe can even be made raw. (Note: You can use 1 1/2 cups of canned pumpkin in place of the fresh.)
1 c. raw cubed pumpkin or lightly steamed pumpkin
1/2 tsp. fresh, grated ginger
juice from 1/2 large lemon
2 Tbsp. tahini
1/4 c. water
pinch of sea salt
pinch of cayenne pepper
dash of pepper
raw or toasted pumpkin seeds, as garnish
Blend all ingredients except seeds in a food processor until creamy. Spoon into in a bowl and top with pumpkin seeds, if desired.
Good food brings people together. So do good emails.
