This recipe is so simple that it didn’t even really need to be created… but I wanted to share this anyways, because it’s actually one of my favourite ways to enjoy kabocha, and it’s just so easy!!
And okay, it’s not completely naked, because I do like to sprinkle a bit of lime or lemon juice and some sea salt on top, but I’m calling it naked because its roasted sans oil. Yep- no spray, no nothing, and it’s still delicious! Of course you can add oil, but I prefer to eat it like this.
And because of my super exciting gmarket find, this recipe is super fast now that I can buy cubed, frozen kabocha.. hee hee..
Cubed kabocha squash (or other winter squash, pumpkin or sweet potato)
Lemon or Lime Juice
Lettuce leaves for wrapping
Preheat oven to 350
On a parchment lined baking tray, add cubed kabocha (or winter squash or pumpkin of choice.)
Roast 25-30 minutes, stirring once halfway
Sprinkle with citrus juice and salt.
Wrap in lettuce leaves as you enjoy!
That’s it! Next, I like to eat it with a huge pile of fresh lettuce:
And I add: (if you have fresh citrus juice- go for it!) Lime, lemon and orange are all delicious.
Other spices I might use are cinnamon, all spice, ginger, chilli powder.. you can play around.
And now for the fun part-
maybe it’s my Korean influence, but this is my absolute favourite thing to do- take those naked kabocha pieces and clothe them!!!
Isn’t it so much more fun when you eat food with your hands?
What do you think?
