Thai Kabocha Squash Soup
Kabocha, also called Japanese pumpkin, has a delectably sweet, creamy flesh. Slow-roasting this squash really brings out maximum flavor. If kabocha is not available in your area, feel free to subsitute an equal weight of acorn squash. Although acorn squash won't be as sweet, you can add a few drops of maple syrup to the mix to make up for it. Do add in all the toppings, though, which provide great flavor and texture to the soup.
