Kabocha Nimono

Uwajimaya | Recipe - Kabocha Nimono
Kobocha (Japanese pumpkin) simmered in a sweet and savory dashi stock.


1 3/4 cups dashi or soup stock

1 lb kabocha


1 Tbsp sugar

2 Tbsp soy sauce

1 Tbsp sake

Salt to taste


In a pot, place the kabocha pieces, skin side down, add the dashi and bring to a boil.

On medium heat, cover and let simmer for 20-30 minutes, until kabocha is soft.

Add soy sauce, sugar, sake and salt, and reduce heat to medium low.

Cook uncovered for another 15 -20 minutes, until sauce has thickened slightly.

Remove from heat and set aside to cool. As the kabocha cools, it will absorb more of the sauce. Serve either cold or reheated
