Roasted Kabocha Squash

Kabocha squash has become one of my favorite winter squashes.  It falls somewhere between butternut squash and pumpkin but it’s a bit drier and more dense (which I really like).

Roasting it with warm spices, like curry powder is a great way to enjoy some comfort food while sticking to your health goals.

Sometimes I serve it as a side dish with chicken or fish and other times I’ll toss some on top of a hearty winter salad.
