Kabocha Squash and Nut Balls

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.


When I first tried kabocha, I was truly amazed. I couldn’t believe the difference in taste, compared to the wider known butternut squash. Why were people eating butternut, when there was this denser, tastier, more wholesome beauty kicking about?! It honestly felt like Christmas had come early for my tastebuds. I could not wait to run home and get creating with my new best (food) friend.

These balls would be great to whip up a big batch, ready for a hungry crowd, as an appetiser, or with some accompaniments for a larger meal.

    1. Hey Lucy, they are round, almost like a small pumpkin shape, normally with a dark green skin. I find the they are so much more flavoursome than the butternut squash varieties!

Thank You! I love hearing from you all.
