Curried Kabocha

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Kabocha is my favorite squash/pumpkin. Serve this as a vegetarian main dish with rice or add some meat to it. It can also be a great side dish to replace your potatoes when eating red meat. Me and hubby like it, not really the kids."

  1. Heat sesame oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add kabocha and onion; cook and stir until tender and onion is translucent, about 10 minutes. Stir in coconut milk, fish sauce, ginger, and curry powder. Bring to a simmer; cook until flavors combine, about 5 minutes. Season with brown sugar and salt.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can add the browned meat of your choice with the coconut milk.
  • You can eat it as a vegetarian or vegan main dish if you replace the fish sauce with 3 tablespoons soy sauce.

I would make it again. I added some chopped celery and a chopped hot red pepper. I had baked the squash ahead of time for another purpose but the consistency was not what I wanted. I didn't cook...
