Wendell's Kabocha

This is Chef Keoni Chang's recipe that Wendell found at the Foodland website here. It actually came out kinda not-too-tender at first and Wendell had to recook it. We ate it with some yuzu sauce that Wendell got from Marukai, and it was good. 



1piece(s)thumb sized piece ginger, peeled and minced
2Clovegarlic, minced
6eachgreen onions
1⁄4Cupdashi or chicken broth
1Tablespoondark brown sugar
1⁄2eachmedium kabocha pumpkin, peeled, seeded and cut into ½-3/4 inch slices
1Teaspoonyuzu juice or mixture of ½ lemon juice and lime juice


  1. Heat a 12" skillet over medium-high heat. Combine all the ingredients except the green onion and pumpkin and bring to a simmer. 
  2. Add kabocha and half the green onions and cook 4 minutes, turn the pieces and cook 4 more minutes. Continue to simmer until the pumpkin is tender and the sauce has reduced to a glaze.
  3. Serve on a platter, drizzle the remaining sauce over the pumpkin. Finish with the remaining half of the green onions and drizzle with the yuzu or lemon lime juice.

Here just to let you all know that I am still breathing. As for the recipe, it looks good. But I would always prefer some meat or seafood added. I don't like all veggie meals. It leaves me way too hungry in the morning.
