Kabocha squash, also known as the Japanese pumpkin, is one of the most under-appreciated vegetables out there, and also happens to be my very favorite.
Basic roasted kabocha squash:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse your kabocha squash, cut in and half and remove all seeds. Cut into wedges, leaving the skin intact — it’s perfectly edible. Cover baking sheet with coconut oil spray (or olive oil spray), add your kabocha, and then give another quick spray for the top layer. Bake for 30-45 minutes (until completely cooked through), flipping at halfway point.
Before and after. May be a bit less pretty after roasting, but certainly tastes way better. Enjoy with a sprinkling of sea salt, or cinnamon, or dipped in maple syrup, or even eat it like fries with ketchup/barbecue sauce. Or try my favorite way: spread some peanut butter on it. Yum!
