If you’re looking for an easy healthy recipe that you will be making over and over again, you’ve found one. Kabocha squash is one of those special foods that tastes great every-time, if you cook it right. I cook mine in very shallow water.
That was the trick to keeping the squash tender but still firm and retaining much of it’s flavor.
my blog is still very much under construction and I put up this post for my own sanity. I really miss you wonderful readers. The people who make it possible for me to do what I love most. Which is cook healthy,delicious food and take stunning images. I’m still working on the stunning images part. 🙂

I have a little bit of work to do while I’m out there as well. However for the most part I will be enjoying her company.

How To Cook Kabocha Squash Perfectly
- 1 Kabocha squash
- 2 1/2 cups water
- Cut the kabocha squash in half with a chefs knife
- Then cut each half into 3 inch pieces.
- Place the squash into a large pot, add in the water.
- Cover the pot and let cook for 15 minutes or until the squash is just tender.
- Serve with your favorite oil and a sprinkle of salt.
- Important. 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,enjoy,enjoy.
Finding an easy healthy recipe that is full of protein,filling and isn’t a bother to prepare can be a challenge. That’s why I created this dish. Cauliflower transforms into rice and the chickpeas into “meat”. What you are left with is a complete meal that isn’t only delicious and satisfying, but also budget friendly.
Did I tell you that in less then two weeks I will be in Barbados ? Yes, I am going back to my homeland for Christmas and it feels so good. I haven’t been back there since I was twelve years old. Since then so many of my cousins,nieces and nephews have been born. I am looking forward to connecting with my favorite cousins and entire family.
It’s time for some coconut water,sand and sea. No more cold December weather. I’m here typing and smiling ! Can you all tell how happy I am. Don’t worry,I will be taking lots of pictures. Both of my aunts run restaurants back home so you know that I will be hitting them up for some authentic island recipes. That Conkie recipe is so mine. A Conkie is a steamed sweet dessert that is made from grated pumpkin and coconuts.
I also look forward to buying authentic island pottery for my blog and interviewing the Rasta community about their cuisine.
Try this easy healthy recipe and you will be amazed at just how delicious it is.
Happy Holidays from Full Food.
