This Smells Great! Kabocha Squash and Green Onions Covered in Bonito Flakes

The butter, garlic and soy sauce together smell so good like a food stall. It's so good I can't stand it! This is easily made in 10 minutes! Eat with rice for dinner or as a drinking appetizer!

Ingredients: 4 servings

Kabocha squash (seeds removed)
400 to 500 g (about 1/4 of a large squash)
Garlic
1 to 2 cloves
Green onion
2-3 stalks
Bonito flakes
1 packet
Butter
10 g
Vegetable oil
1 teaspoon
Soy sauce
1 tablespoon

Steps

1. Remove the seeds and fibrous parts out of the kabocha squash and cut into 3 cm cubes. Microwave until a bamboo skewer goes through a piece easily (about 4 minutes at 600 W).
2. Heat butter and oil in a pan and saute the thinly sliced garlic. Take care not to let it burn, as you bring out the fragrance.
3. Ad the kabocha squash to the pan and stir to coat with the oil.
4. Add the finely chopped green onion and bonito flakes, and coat.
5. Pour in the soy sauce on the hot surface of the pan. It will sizzle and smell wonderful. Turn the heat off and mix to distribute the soy sauce.

Story Behind this Recipe

People from Kansai like to add tons of green onion to everything. This is a forced adaptation of an ononomiyaki.
