I picked this up at the Farmer’s Market. I like to try something new, so I picked a new squash. I asked the lady what it was, and then asked her to repeat it!
I repeated to myself as I walked back to work. I looked it up on the internet. Also known as a Red Kuri squash, or a chestnut squash.
I roasted it like I would any other squash
I cut it in half and scooped out the seeds. Place cut side down on a baking tray and put in the oven for 45minutes-1 hour at about 180C.
It does taste like chestnut! Like when you roast chestnuts and they go crumbly.
I used the squash in several recipes. It was great over a salad, in soup, and porridge:
What is your favourite squash? This one rates highly for me!
