For a healthy vegetarian lunch, try “Khaddo,” an aromatic Afghani-spiced pumpkin stew.
By Nina Kauder
Today, let’s talk about pumpkins and this aromatic Afghani-spiced pumpkin stew, “Khaddo,” that will soon be simmering in your kitchen. Forget puréeing your vegetables; sometimes you need a little texture, and this pumpkin stew will certainly do the trick.
For this recipe, we turned to Florida Food & Farm contributor Nina Kauder, who made the fresh, seasonal pumpkin the star of the dish.
Kauder combines fresh pumpkin with Afghani spices such as coriander and ginger, then adds a bit of spice and a cool-me-down tzatziki-style sauce to make a fragrant dish that will have you singing its praises.
