Kabocha is a squat looking green pumpkin with an inside that’s similar to butternut squash. This is a super simple stew (recipe curtesy of my mother) made using one of my new T-Fal stainless steel pots (I love how the pots have measuring marks)! Go to the bottom of the recipe if you’re interested in winning some new pots and pans

The kabocha cooks down to make a nice soft and slightly sweet side dish – perfect for pairing with some pan-fried tilapia.
- 1/2 kabocha (japanese pumpkin), peeled, deseeded and chopped into 1-inch cubes
- 1 red bell pepper, diced
- 1 tomato, diced (or use a handful of grape or cherry tomatoes)
- 1 cup water
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- Place the kabocha, peppers, tomatoes, water, salt, and pepper into a large pot and cook on a medium heat with the lid on until the kabocha is soft (approx. 20 minutes).
- Gently mix in 2 tablespoons of olive oil and serve.
