Have you heard of kabocha squash? I hadn’t until last year, when I tried it in a chicken curry and was sold. It’s mild and slightly sweet, similar to butternut squash. I’ve been wanting to create a fall soup recipe using squash and knew this would be a good bet.
I decided to roast the squash first, so it could caramelize since then it tastes that much better.
Just look at the caramelized kabocha goodness.
The addition of sautéed leeks and shallots in this recipe bring a mild and slightly sweet onion flavor. Combine that with the creaminess of the coconut milk and you’ve got freaking heaven in a spoon.
