Healthy Beef and Vegetable Casserole


Health is wealth…..This is a one dish meal made of beef and healthy selection of vegetables that include pumpkin, potato, celery, carrots & onions slow cooked to perfection. I intend to blend all the vegetables present in the recipe, it serves as a thick creamy sauce and best for kids who hardly eat vegetables, they can see the little ones, but not the “blended ones!!!. I would say my daughter are one of those, she always set aside on her plate every little piece of veggies, but this time, she can’t……Did you know that regular consumptions of pumpkin can boost your immune system and can help promote the health of your eyes because of its good source of vitamin A and Vitamin C..
