Here’s a recipe for roasted and spiced kabocha squash, sometimes called Japanese pumpkin!

Here’s what you will need:

  2. Slice the squash in half and scoop out the seeds.
  3. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

  5. Mix the oil with parsley, garlic and caraway seeds.
  6. Rub the oil mixture in the squash wedges and place them on the parchment paper. Make sure they are not stacked on top of each other.
