Chili with Pumpkin – healthy Pumpkin Chili Recipe
Today I will introduce you to a really delicious healthy pumpkin recipe: My Pumpkin-Chili. The name already tells you everything you need to know about this healthy pumpkin recipe. Specifically, a delicious pumpkin-chili recipe that combines the best of both, chili and pumpkin.
At the moment you can buy pumpkin almost everywhere. I am a huge fan of Hokkaido pumpkin and chili con carne, but I try to eat less meat. This is also due to recent change in public opinion. So, the best option was very obvious to me! A healthy alternative to chili con carne with less meat. Then the pumpkin came to my rescue. That’s how this super delicious pumpkin chili was created! Just try it out and see for yourself!
My Chili Pumpkin Recipe:
Even though I avoid minced meat in the chili, I still add a little chicken. Just because I like chicken very much and a chili with additional meat seemed a lot more delicious. But of course you can change the recipe as you please.
Chili with pumpkin
- 150 g onion
- 350 g hokkaido Pumpkin
