My Meatless Mondays - Apricot Kabocha Squash

If you don't mind baking a squash and adding a little jelly, you have the easiest,creamiest sweet side dish that goes with almost anything.

 I have been in love with kabocha since I came across it. It has this natural sweetness and wonderful texture and like all squash is versatile in its use. When I bought this kabocha, I had planned to fuss with it, but at the last minute, I had little time to do something with it. I stuck it in the oven and figured if worse came to worse, I would mash it and serve it plain. Plain kabocha squash is delicious.

As it turns out, I made one change to this, I added two tablespoons of apricot jelly to the squash, mashed it and served it. How easy can you get? I baked it for an hour at 350 Degrees.

This is another of Winnie's fabulous challahs.  Ask her, how many times, I asked her to move next door so I could eat her delicious cakes and breads?   



Now, do tell what you are bringing to the table this week.  Thanks for making the change to Bizzy Bakes with me.

    One day I will have a meatless dish to share, Chaya. We've been so bad lately with meat consumption. Tends to happen this time of year.
