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!

A Note From Jill Fergus

I agree with Janelle. It's not easy to simply eat kabocha squash in moderation, especially when it's on topping toast and ricotta!

A Note From Jill Fergus

Ingredients soba noodles sesame oil rice wine vinegar salt pepper broccoli florets roasted kabocha squash parsley red chili flakes Method Slice kabocha squash in half, take out seeds and cut into even pieces. Toss w/ EVOO and salt. Roast for 40 min at 375F. Toss chilled soba noodles in toasted sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, salt & pepper. Top with blanched and shocked broccoli florets (toss florets in boiling water for ~1 min then immediately using a spider spoon place them into ice cold water until fully cooled). Top with roasted kabocha squash, parsley, and red chili flakes (or spice of your choosing). Kabocha squash has incredible flavor, blending both sweet and savory. This simple soba dish takes advantage of this and allows these flavors to shine through!

Mini Kabocha Pies

I'm not one to have a dirty mouth...but I took one bite of these and I couldn't help myself. I saw these yummy looking prebiotic bites on @shutthekaleup instastory and I decided to make my own! These are beauty bites and are not only a good source of collagen but also of essential fats, complex carbs, and healthy proteins.

A Note From Jill Fergus

These tasty little pies are not the decadent treat they are mascarading as. If flavored collagen isn't for you, substitute a splash of dark maple syrup.

Kabocha Squash Soup With Coconut Cream

A little throwback (circa 2014) to one of my favorite soups. It's a kabocha squash soup w/ fennel, ginger, and some hints of coconut. It's current times like these that I'm fully aware of how bland and ordinary food and life would be without the interwoven cultures that make this country rich in countless ways. So grateful @kimberleyhasselbrink got some all star peeps together to share their #immigrantfoodstories and recipes.

Pesto Chicken Sandwich With Kabocha And Veggies

This #sandwich was life Pesto chicken, shredded beet spread, roasted kabocha squash, wilted @iloveorganicgirl baby spinach and avocado. All on two pieces of @julianbakery coconut paleo bread toasted. SO GOOD! It's full of veggies and lean protein, paleo and could be #vegan if you sub tofu for chicken and omit collagen in the Pesto (see below). The Pesto is a homemade basil pesto made with @terrasoul pumpkin seeds and @sportsresearch MCT oil PLUS collagen! Full of #healthyfats and protein!!

Don't limit your possibilities! The addition of roasted kabocha squash to this sandwich elevates it to a whole other level!

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.

I have yet to meet a kabocha squash soup I don't like. Thai inspired curry compliments this pumpkin beautifully!
