Red pumpkin in Ukrainian ethnic cuisine
We are talking about such an extraordinary vegetable as a pumpkin. It is known worldwide as a very bright orange pumpkin that is easy to grow and cook, beautiful and tasty. Traditional Ukrainian cuisine Etnocook recommends it as a unique low-calorie meal and a cozy autumn decoration.
Ukrainians have been using pumpkins for centuries. In fact, not only to cook delicious dishes, but they were very symbolic. For example, there was an old tradition, that when a girl didn’t want matchmaking she would give a boy a pumpkin to show that she was rejecting a marriage purpose. So to this day there have been no proverbs and quotes that warn not to receive a pumpkin.
Pumpkins are really delicious, by the way. They are eaten in soups, breads, cakes, roasts, drinks and as a dessert. Pumpkin Yushka traditional Ukrainian first course soup is delicious and you must try it at least once.
I want to point out, that this vegetable is just what you are looking for for weight loss and healthy eating at the same time. Since 100 g of pumpkin only provides 26 kCal. In addition, it is rich in Vitamin A and Vitamin C.
And when you get the chance, try Etnocook’s original traditional Pumpkin Yushka (soup) recipe. It is easy to cook and the ingredients are found practically everywhere in the world.
