Kabocha soup - Simple and delicious!

Updated: Nov 12

Surprise your family with a perfect fall soup that has a delightful sweetness, surpassing even the taste of butternut squash. Its texture and flavor is close to a blend of pumpkin and sweet potato without the cream.


A great immune booster for this fall: this squash is rich in beta carotene, with iron, vitamin C, potassium, and smaller traces of calcium, folic acid, and minute amounts of B vitamins.

  • 4 carrots

  • 4 celery stalks
