Roasted Kabocha Squash Soups
If you love squash soups, but don't have the time (or energy) to peel and chop a butternut, then kabocha squash is your new best friend. Kabocha tastes like a cross between pumpkin and sweet potato - so it's perfect for creamy, warming soups! And because it's so dense, you only need one or two cups of cubed kabocha (or you can just roast them whole, and then use the roasted squash) to make a soup. Here are my favorite soups to get you started!
Kabocha Squash Curries
Kabocha squash and curry flavors are a match made in heaven! Kabocha has a sweet, nutty flavor and is often used in curries because its sweetness pairs well with spices like cumin, coriander, and turmeric. Give them a try - I promise you won't be disappointed!
