Roasted Kabocha Squash Soup - Nothing hits the spot more than this delicious, nutritious, comforting soup!
1lb Kabocha Squash
1 TBS Coconut Oil (or olive or grapeseed oil)
1 Shallot (diced)
2 Cloves of garlic (chopped)
3" piece of ginger (chopped)
6 cups of water or vegetable stock
1/2 cup of coconut milk (I used about 3 TBS)
Salt & pepper to taste
Preheat Oven to 325 degrees
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
Cut the Kabocha into wedges and roast on baking sheet for 25 minutes or until fork tender.
Let cool until you can handle them enough to peel the skin away.
While the squash is roasted, sauté the shallot, garlic and ginger in a medium pot over medium low heat, until the shallot is tender and somewhat translucent. Remove from heat until the squash is roasted and peeled.
Add squash to the pot and cover with water or vegetable stock.
Bring to boil, then reduce to simmer for 10 minutes.
Reduce to low heat, and add coconut milk.
Turn off the heat and purge the soup in the pot using an immersion blender.
If using a regular blender, transfer soup in batches and be careful not to overfill the blender as it could explode hot soup all over you and your kitchen.
Season soup with salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
The Roasted Pumpkin & Beet Salad at @thesheridanroom was not my favorite. 🥗 They use kabocha squash and I am not a fan of the dry, grainy texture. It’s also pretty acidic. The beets and candied walnuts are great, though!

I love Korean grocery store food courts. I do. And, the one here, tucked away in the back of the H Mart in Ellicott City, Maryland is one of the best. For one thing, the menu is extensive. In terms of sheer selections, it rivals, if not surpasses, some restaurants. Plus, they offer some choices that go well beyond the typical kimchi stew or bibimbap. Like the dish I ordered. Called “Ribs Hobak Jim,” the item’s description promised “steamed ribs with sweet pumpkin and special sauce.” You can’t ever go wrong with “special sauce.” —————— The dish is essentially a version of kalbi jjim (braised short ribs). One of my all time favorite Korean specialties and something I crave whenever carnivore palpitations manifest in my heart. That it’s cold outside only intensifies the lust. ————————— And, it’s good. The kabocha pumpkin is cooked perfectly, skin on. Think squash in texture but with a firm yet forgiving casing. The “special sauce” is some kind of sweet soy based concoction that kisses all of the constituent parts. The pumpkin. And, the star of the show. The short ribs. Which are as tender as a blush of teenage love. ————- Suffice it to say, this was a satisfying meal. This is a special spot. Sauce and all. ————-

My Kabocha Squash Soup with Shredded Chicken Recipe
1 1/2 Cups of Kabocha Squash
1 Cup of Low Sodium Chicken Broth (we love the imagine no chicken broth)
6 Cups of Water
5-6 oz. of Chicken roasted and removed from the bone (no skin)
1. Add kabocha to a soup pot. Add in the chicken broth and 4 cups of water. Cook over medium hight heat for about 40 minutes or so or until the broth has reduced quite a bit. This can be done in a crockpot as well.
2. Bake chicken drumbs in the oven on 450 for about 40 minutes- an hour. Remove skin. Cut all of the meat off the bone. Reserve to the side. You can just add them and allow them to cook in the soup if you like, I like to cook separate so I can weigh and measure how much I'm having.
3. Once the kabocha is done cooking, use an immersion blender or a food processor to puree or you can just mash the chunky bits with a fork. You can just serve it as a chunky sup if you prefer.
4. Add 2 more cups of water once you've mashed or pureed the soup and cook up another 5 minutes.
6. Add the shredded chicken pieces into the soup and stir it in. Reserve a couple of pieces to top the soup at the center with for garnish.
7. Then serve warm.
This can be refrigerated or frozen to be reheated and served at a later time too!
It feels so completely surreal that this is my life. I woke up today and did my walk with Jesus. Yes, praise God IT'S BAPTISM day!
So, the day you get baptized and find out that Jesus got baptized on the same day! YOU are so on fire with love,praise,worship and you live to now serve God.
So needed this, So worth it, I found my purpose & gained an amazing amount of confidence!
This weekend was perfect. So special and I'm so emotional and so proud of myself for taking this Walk With Jesus.
Not everyone has, but when did you take your walk WITH Jesus?
Full testimony was uploaded on my YouTube channel. Link in my bio!
Marinated a whole block of soy and pumpkin seed #tempeh for lunches last week and paired it with #kabochasquash Marinade was a miso, tamari, rice vinegar, maple syrup and ginger blend. Roasted the tempeh in the marinade to glaze it. Yum!

One of my classics that I haven’t had much lately 🤔 it’s really fun bringing this to work and having people ask if I’m eating an actual 🎃 🤷🏼♀️ also you can eat the skin and sometimes I do depending on how trash I’m feeling 💅🏻

Does anyone else save the skin of the kabocha? It’s actually my favorite part of the squash! I love to smother it in but butter — it’s the perfect combo! The skin also possesses a lot of nutrients & is a great source of fiber.
This is one of my bowls I made the other night for dinner: I started with a base of canned organic pinto beans, tri coloured quinoa and kabocha squash, then I built upon it by adding in some mushrooms sautéed in garlic, Himalayan salt, tamari, and vegan Worcestershire sauce. I also added in half a sliced avocado and some of my cranberry sauce I made using cranberries and raw Honey. Super satisfying and delicious!!! #quinoa#beans#kabochasquash
*Simpler the better*
I like simplicity. I was craving for something warm that could raise my body temperature, so I had #kabochasquash this morning. It’s still dark outside and is raining. Keep warm and take care😊

vegan pumpkin spice chili 🍲🎃 HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! started off 2019 with some hot yoga and this big bowl of amazing chili made with my favorite food in the entire world aka kabocha squash! basically just warming my soul today in every way possible ☺️ anyway, intention at yoga this morning was “show up for yourself in 2019” and I’m just totally trying to embrace that this year! I usually ain’t about new years resolutions, but I think we can all afford to treat ourselves with the same kindness we show others ❤️ so here’s to more self-love, compassion, and big bowls of yummy foods in 2019!!!
- heat a little evoo over medium heat in a big pot and cook one yellow onion and some garlic until tender and fragrant
- add cinnamon/clove/nutmeg/allspice/salt to taste
- add one can kidney beans and one can diced tomatoes (liquid included!) and ~1/2 cup white wine and stir it all up
- add one kabocha squash (peeled and chopped into bite sized cubes), bring to boil, then cover and simmer until squash is tender
- top with parsley and serve with a slice of fresh levain! mines from local rusticabakery and omg I died and went to sourdough heaven 😍😍 .
I feel like this is the boringest plate I’ve ever posted 😂 turmeric jasmine rice, organic corn, and baked kabocha squash (I think also called buttercup). This is the BEST squash ever in my opinion, it’s so creamy, sweet, delicious and just has the best texture. If you haven’t tried it yet please do!! Check your farmers markets or Walmart which is where I got mine. 🤗
A little bit (or a lotta bit) of everything is always the best, right? @naomithesweetestpotato has somewhere in between a little and lotta bit of everything here with roasted kabocha squash, red beans, roasted asparagus, avocado, and a garlic tahini lemon dressing.

If you can find this guy at your Whole Foods I highly recommend! I think right now my squash power ranking is 1️⃣ kabocha 2️⃣ delicata 3️⃣ spaghetti 4️⃣ acorn 🤗🤫 .

A little #saladeveryday bowl with greens, tuna salad, avo and my favorite kabocha tots. 🥗💃🏻💯
If you haven’t tried kabocha squash yet, let me fill ya in on my fav winter squash: it tastes like a cross between pumpkin and a sweet potato, it’s a good source of beta-carotene, iron and fiber + 1 cup has less than half the carbs of butternut squash (7g vs 16g) and I think it tastes better than butternut too! 🙋🏻♀️ Now’s a great time to try kabocha because a few years ago I was only able to find it at Asian grocery stores but lately I’ve been seeing it at my local farmers market and more grocery stores! 🤗 The absolute best part? You can eat the skin so you don’t have to peel it off like you do with butternut! Total game changer, right!?!
Kabocha tot recipe is on my site and linked in my bio. 💗
Skyr, squash, salmon toast 😱🎃🤗 Say that 5 times fast! 😂Smashed the frozen kabocha squash from TJ’s that I sautéed in turmeric all over this amazing sourdough fig bread we got from @eatalychicago over the weekend topped with @siggisdairy pumpkin spice yogurt (aka skyr) and TJ’s smoked salmon 🤤👌🏻🎉 The different textures go so good together and it’s the perfect protein, carb & fat I need to power through this afternoon...ya know?! 😴😴I love the holidays, but as someone who thrives off of routine I gotta say it’s refreshing to get back to it ✌🏻😝 #squashtoast#feedfeed

Quería hablarles un chin sobre la Auyama o Calabaza y responder algunas de sus preguntas.
📌Primero les cuento que de este lado del charco la encuentras en el supermercado por el nombre de Kabocha/Kabucha Squash y está disponible literalmente en todos lados. Nunca he tenido inconvenientes en encontrarla.
📌Mencionando algunos de sus beneficios es rica en Vitaminas, Hierro, Potasio,Fibra, Magnesio, Ácido Fólico, Fósforo y muchos otros más. 📌Para hacer el puré simplemente la corto en trozos medianos/grandes y la pongo a hervir en agua con sal hasta que esté blanda (el final si le pones un diente de ajo al agua 😉) Luego la machaco y le pongo una cucharada de aceite de oliva o mantequilla.
Para acompañar no se preocupen, pega con to’
🙌🏽 Pero espérense, el agua de la hervida la reservo y la uso como consomé para habichuelas, sopas, cocidos, moros, locrios.
En mi cocina poco se desperdicia 😁
📌SIEMPRE que la hiervo (o si es cocida al vapor) y se la pongo a mis habichuelas y/o caldos, etc es con su CÁSCARA. 📌 Si la pones a hervir o la cueces al vapor “Sin Sal” la puedes utilizar en postres, flanes, bizcochos, panes, bebidas, etc.
📌También estoy casi segura de sus beneficios tópicos(pero eso está en transmisión de prueba todavía 😆)
🤔Déjenme saber si se me quedó algo sin decir. ⭕️📝 Ah por favor déjenme sus preguntas en los comentarios así los demás tienen acceso a las respuestas 😃
Hasta más tarde...
