This sweet winter squash may be lesser-known in comparison to its cousins butternut squash and pumpkin; but there are endless ways to use kabocha in fall cooking. We scoured the internet looking for creative, vegan preparations and found seven kabocha recipes to suit any time of day. (Yes, all of these recipes are vegan!)
Not to be confused with kombucha, the fermented tea drink, kabocha looks like a small (2-3lbs) pumpkin but with a deep green color. Find kabocha at your grocery store or local farmer’s market and give one of these recipes a try!
And remember: If you don’t want to make a trip to the store or turn on your oven to enjoy kabocha, we’ve got you covered. Chef Guy chose kabocha as the star ingredient of our seasonal menu at Beyond Sushi so stop by for some comforting kabocha goodness or place an order for delivery using our app!
