quick meals: roasted Kabocha pumpkin
Few things make me happier than super-simple vegetable preparations that yield delicious results. Case in point: Roasted Kabocha Pumpkin. The hardest part is slicing the thing: Kabocha has a tough skin, but it’s totally edible, so you don’t need to peel it. After it’s sliced, toss with a bit of coconut or olive oil, sprinkle on just a pinch of brown sugar, roast for just 15 minutes and you have sweet, awesome pumpkin to enjoy for any meal of the day.
