Foodie Fridays - Pumpkin with bacon rolls and stirred fry spinach with mushrooms

This was requested by Xav after he saw it from one of the television programme. I didn't managed to take down what condiments they used but saw briefly that only few ingredients are involved :

1. Pumpkin Cubes
2. Spinach
3. Chinese Mushrooms (Soaked and sliced)
4. Bacon (1 pack)
5. Minced Garlic

The only condiment I used was Abalone Sauce.

Method :
1. Cut the pumpkin into cubes and steam for 20 mins (You can choose to bake it but I have yet to try that out)
2. Wrap and roll the pumpkin using bacon and secure with a toothpick.
3. Pan fry the bacon rolls till cooked and set aside after removing the toothpicks. (Note : I did not add any oil when pan frying the bacon rolls)
4. Stir fry the spinach with minced garlic, add abalone sauce for taste.
5. Dish the spinach and place around the plate and arrange your bacon rolls. And there you go ! Easy Peasy right ?

I am no pumpkin lover but suprisingly I ate quite a few pieces from this dish. The sweetness from the pumpkin blends pretty well with the saltiness from the bacon. Happy cooking !

Pumpkin and bacon... hmm... how does the combination taste like? Coz pumpkin are sweet and bacon are salty :P We DinoFamily no pumpkin fan (except for Western style pumpkin soup) so I will not have a chance to try this out. However the color combination is good, bright orange on greens, makes the food looks appetizing.
