Kabocha Squash is a relatively new addition to the American vegetable aisle, but it’s been a Japanese staple for many years. High in beta-carotene, it also has a skin which becomes tender and edible when roasted. Enjoy this easy dish with balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, and a little olive oil. Feel free to add herbs if you wish!
Squash is a wonderful food to add to your diet. Its bets carotene nourishes the skin, is a good source of vitamin A, C, its high in fiber, and keeps you feeling satiated. I love the autumn season because that is when winter Squash is abundant here in Colorado. There are just so many different types of squash, which you will notice, each has a different flavor and even texture.
There are many ways you can enjoy a roasted squash. You can chop the roasted squash into a warm or cold salad, add it into a curry, mash it into a creamy lower fat mash, blend it into a soup or it is as is once roasted.
I love bringing roasted Kabocha to Thanksgiving potlucks as its simple and filling, and just so satisfying.
