Stewed Kabocha

Source

Kabocha often time called Japanese pumpkin is commonly eaten in my home. This is a hearty squash with thick green skin and a golden flesh.Its flavor is sweet and delicate. Many say it taste like a combination of sweet potato and pumpkin. I love to serve this dish as a side. its sweet taste is popular with children. I also love it because it is reich in beta carotene, vitamin C and iron. It also holds well at room temperature so I pack it for my children's lunch.

You must try it! It has a wonderful flavor. I'm in the process of trying to recreate a half kobocha and sweet potato pie I like. I get it at the coffee shop. Kobocha is delicate sweet and hearty. You can also cut it thin and fry it tempura style.
