kabocha squash

My new fav food blog, the beautiful and inspiring JustBento introduces us to kabocha squash.

I’ve been trying to expand my winter squash repertoire, and came across this recipe for a Japanese-style squash. It looks pretty flexible, so I think really any variety of winter squash would do. I’m going to try it with the beautiful Red Kuri Squash I bought at the farmer’s market today.

It looks so much like a pumpkin that that’s what my husband thought it was, until I told him.
