Quick & Simple Kabocha (Japanese Pumpkin) Stew – Cooking Planit T-Fal Cookware Review

Louise Hendon | August 24
paleo kabocha stew

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.
