  1. 1 Kabocha squash
  2. 2 1/2 cups water


  1. Cut the kabocha squash in half with a chefs knife
  2. Then cut each half into 3 inch pieces.
  3. Place the squash into a large pot, add in the water.
  4. Cover the pot and let cook for 15 minutes or until the squash is just tender.
  5. Serve with your favorite oil and a sprinkle of salt.


Put the squash in first and then add in the water making sure that it touches all of the pieces of squash. This enables the squash to steam properly. This process also works well with plantains too. Enjoy.
