Spicy Roasted Sweet Squash is a fun and easy way to get your veggies in. The perfect autumn side dish that goes great with turkey or beef, or... well it goes with everything. This is my first time eating the Kabocha or Sweet Mama Squash. It's texture is like a potato slightly waxy, soft, and after getting kissed by smoke and roasting on the barbecue, it's sooooo sweet. Not like sugar sweet, but a lightly flavored sweet.
If you're inexperienced with hard veggies, this one is HARD. Physically. You will need a good meat cleaver kind of knife, something that will get through a turnip or pumpkin. Thank goodness my husband was helping. He actually had a blast breaking through the gourd. And he used my avocado tool to scoop out the innards in a single swipe! Once sliced it's an easy season, and bake.
