There’s something decidedly magical about kabocha squash. It bakes and steams beautifully, and adds flavor and texture to salads and main dishes. Kabocha is great enjoyed with a bit of salt and a touch of any high-quality oil of choice. But what to do with kabocha innards?
I decided to write this post for anyone who’s open to reaching into kabocha’s gooey abyss and turn its seeds into crunchy yummy goodness. Yes!
Here’s what I ended up doing: First, I cleaned off the seeds and rinsed and dried them. Then, I coated them in coconut oil, added some hemp seeds, salt, lemon juice, pepper and a dash of maca (so queer!), and baked the mixture in the oven for 35 minutes on 375 degrees. Magic! Feel free to experiment with quantities of maca. Enjoy!
