Winter Squashes and Pumpkins

In this segment of From A to Vegan videos, we talk about a variety of winter squashes and pumpkins available for consumption. Although considered a vegetable for cooking, these nutritional powerhouses are botanically fruits as they are the containers of the plant’s seed.  You might only think of gourds as pumpkins you carve a face out of for Halloween–but we’ll show you they are vitamin- and mineral-rich vegetables that can be substituted into a diet to replace other more traditional foods (like pasta sauce) or just delicious roasted in an oven on their own.
