The vegetables supply plenty of fiber and a mixture of vitamins, including vitamin C from the potatoes, tomatoes, and onion and vitamin A from the pumpkin (as beta-carotene). The cheese is, of course, an excellent source of calcium as well as protein.

  • 1 1/2 pounds pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 10 ounces vegetable broth
  • 1 small sprig of fresh rosemary
