As avid cooks and foodies we all want to discover new ingredients, have you tried to cook a kabocha squash recipe yet?
Kabocha squash is a Japanese pumpkin with a dark green skin and a bright orange interior. Sweeter than butternut, it actually has a texture unique from any other squash I have had. The flesh has a thick starchiness not unlike a yam or a potato. The skin is thin and edible, and absolutely delicious roasted or deep fried.
The kabocha squash recipe below is an ultra simple preparation of kabocha squash, but I urge you to try it out for yourself, it is my family’s new favorite.
