KABOCHA

This is not really a recipe, but more of a tribute to one of my favorite produce items.  Kabocha is a japanese winter squash that kind of reminds me an asian version of the pumpkin!  It is a mildly-sweet  and similar to the texture of a mix of the sweet potato and pumpkin.  Kabocha is commonly found in asian markets, but can also be found at some local grocery stores such as Whole Foods.  It is a great addition to a macrobiotic diet and is a good source of beta carotene, vitamin C, B1, and B2.

My favorite way to eat this is just by simply steaming 🙂 I like to steam the pieces and sometimes throw them into some butternut squash soup with some japanese sweet potato… so good.  You can also treat it as butternut squash for preparation.  And leave the skin on!
