Kabocha Stew

Kabocha is a Japanese pumpkin that is filled with essential vitamins and nutrients. Cook this quick and healthy soup for dinner and save the leftovers for lunch. 

2-3 tbsp Unrefined coconut oil
1 tbsp Finely chopped ginger
1 Garlic clove (finely chopped)
1 Medium kabocha pumpkin (seeds removed, peel on, diced into bite-sized pieces)
4 cups Vegetable broth
2 tbsp White miso
2 tbsp Mirin
1 tsp Coconut sugar
1 tbsp Low-sodium soy sauce
3/4 cup Roasted pumpkin seeds

In a large pot, heat the oil and cook the ginger and garlic until fragrant (about 1 minute).

Toss in the pumpkin and sautee, stirring occasionally, for about 5-7 minutes, until the pumpkin browns a little. Add the broth.

In a small bowl, mix the miso with a little water, the mirin, and sugar and add to the pot. Stir well and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 15 minutes, until the pumpkin is soft.

Serve topped with the pumpkin seeds.
