  • Steam kabocha: Cut kabocha into small pieces and steam them in a pan for about 10mins until tender.
  • Mash kabocha: Place the kabocha in a medium-sized bowl and use either a masher or fork to mash it.

  • Toss: Add the dressing to the bowl and toss until it is well mixed.

Notes

  • Equipment: Saucepan (18cm/7 inches), Steamer basket
  • Substitute: I use raw lemons, but you can also use bottled lemon juice or vinegar. You can substitute honey with sugar (or you can omit the honey if the kabocha is sweet enough).
  • Storage: Boiled eggs don't last very long after peeling, so try to eat them by the next day.
  • Kabocha squash can be boiled or heated in the microwave instead of steaming.
