Kabocha Squash

A Note From Jill Fergus

Kabocha (also known as Japanese pumpkin) is, hands down, my favorite winter squash. It has a very rich, sweet flavor, much sweeter than pumpkin, with a chestnut-like texture (similar to a sweet potato). It commonly has a dark green skin, though occasionally you'll be able to find some that are bright orange. The skin as also thin and edible, which translates to no peeling! Because it is so flavorful, Kabocha is delicious simply roasted, blended into soups, stews, porridges, is wonderful in vegetable tempura and is occasionally used in desserts (I suggest substituting it in your favorite pumpkin pie recipe). This squash is rich in beta carotene and contains iron, vitamin C, potassium with lesser amounts of calcium and folic acid, making this a wonderful source of nutrition and a winter squash your family is sure to love!

While I've got Kabocha and lentils on the brain and the holidays are coming, I thought I'd tb to this crostini topped with French lentils, sautéed mushrooms, puréed Kabocha, shaved radish and microgreens. Easy to prepare the components ahead of time, so day of entertaining is easier! And this was originally created from leftovers.

A Note From Jill Fergus

In this delicious savory galette, the sweetness of the kabocha is wonderfully augmented by caramelized onions and gruyere. Don't be intimidated by this- Rachel's recipe is user friendly and she recommends using pre-made short crust or pie dough (it's your choice to make it from scratch or use good quality store bought.)

Roasted Scarlet Kabocha Soup

Roasted Scarlet Kabocha Soup so thick and velvety you just want to reach for some crusty sourdough and scoop some up! This has to be my favorite squash of the Fall season and just can't get enough of it. I came across the scarlet variety at @unsqgreenmarket and new it would make a stunning treat. I topped it here with pan toasted pumpkin seeds, shaved radish and a tahini maple drizzle.
