Kumara and pumpkin

 

 

Another New Zealand favorite
Serves 4 as a side vegetable
1 medium kumara (If you can’t locate kumara at a specialty produce store, try using batata, boniato, or sweet potatoes.)
12 ounces pumpkin, peeled
1 tablespoon oil
2 slices bacon, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and chopped

Boil kumara and pumpkin together until tender but still firm. Cut both into bite sized chunks. Heat the oil in a large pan or wok. Add the bacon and garlic and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the pumpkin and kumara and stir fry for 4 to 5 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked. Serve immediately.
