Well, last night, I attempted a new food that I discovered by reading about it several times on the super-web.
|Not my pic (source) forgot to snap one before I cut into him.|
A week later, I actually had the time to roast it up for dinner.
The process underway. Chopped up and roasted with the rest of my dinner.
I enjoyed the kabocha with roasted cauliflower, zucchini, asparagus, and tofu. Some spicy marinara on the side.
So how did kabocha score on the grading scale? B
Honestly, didn't blow my socks off. Sure, it tasted good, and I definitely enjoyed my dinner, but I found it to be a less flavorful, not as sweet, version of butternut squash. And, at about twice the price. Maybe my cooking method wasn't perfect. It's definitely worth a second try... if it ever goes on sale. Until then, I'll stick with butternut.
Here's to experimenting in the kitchen!
