Roasted Kabocha Squash Soup

Roasted Kabocha Squash Soup

Now that fall is here, you might start noticing some brilliant colored squashes at your local farmer’s market or grocery store. Of course, you have your standard small sugar pumpkins and butternut squash, but an often-overlooked squash is Kabocha. It is dark green and generally about 3-5 lbs. It is a dense, strongly flavored and tasty squash that makes for an excellent fall soup.
