  • 1 Kabocha Squash


  • Carefully slice your pumpkin in half.
  • Clean the seeds and pulp out of each half.
  • Place cut sides down on a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Roast in the oven for about 45 minutes at 350 degrees F, or until a fork pierces the skin and flesh easily.
  • To make pumpkin purée for muffins, cookies, pies and such, blend the pumpkin flesh with an immersion blender until smooth. Sometimes the pumpkin is so tender, you can just just mash with a fork and it is ready to use.
