KABOCHA SQUASH (JAPANESE PUMPKIN) SOUP WITH MISO RECIPE

September is almost there already…! Time goes by so fast, and it’s kind of sad that super hot days are getting over.

Although it’s still summer, it’s time to share the delicious recipe for fall season vegetable today one step ahead.

I’ve introduced several miso soup recipes using kabocha squash (Japanese pumpkin) in the past.
Kabocha squash was cut into small pieces and just the part of ingredient for those miso soups at that time.

But you can experience the excellence of kabocha squash abundantly this time!

It’s very simple soup but the sweetness from the kabocha squash mixing with miso paste generates super tasty and rich flavor.

Please enjoy this fantastic soup for your meal!

If you have different kind of pumpkin with you, it’s just alright. Please use it for this recipe too, and you may need sugar or honey if the pumpkin is not so sweet.
