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!

this dish satisfies many a craving and is another one bowl meal wonder! It's packed with nutrition and flavor using fresh green vegetables to compliment the squash and the red curry! Whiles fresh ginger is best, you may substitute ground ginger.

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.

Pumpkin And Scarlet Kabocha Soup

Pumpkin and Scarlet Kabocha Soup seasoned with ginger, coriander and cumin. This creamy, luscious texture was the result of using some unsweetened almond milk (cashew good, too) and high speed blender (I love my @vitamix ). I topped this bowl with chewy farro, hazelnuts, micro chervil and some hot pepper for those who a kick. This one is a crowd pleaser and perfect for this chilly weekend!

Turkey And Kabocha Squash Bean Chili

Good morning friends! Recently my pal @immediatelycookies challenged me to make a pretty fall pot of chili. As I'm sure some of you know chili isn't always to most aesthetically pleasing. But I happily obliged. I made a turkey and @heritagedistilling Brown Sugar Bourbon chili with purple yams, kabocha squash, fresh ginger and tons of spices. Then I garnished each serving with lemon, crispy sage, shallots, chopped walnuts, and a Serrano pepper. I'm feeling pretty good about it! And the flavor was incredible! Head to @immediatelycookies to see his gorgeous recipe and be sure to tag us if you decide to make some Pretty Chili of your own!
