My Family's Easy Kabocha Squash Potage

My Family's Easy Kabocha Squash Potage

Kids seem to really like this soup. Making kabocha into soup means you can eat a lot of it in one go, and it tastes amazing – two birds with one stone! This is my family's staple soup recipe.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

Kabocha squash
10 g
200 ml
200 ml
Stock cube (consomme)
Salt and pepper
small amount


1. Peel and slice the kabocha and microwave until soft.
2. Thinly slice the onion. Melt butter in a pot and sauté the onions. Add water and cook until soft.
3. Add the kabocha and purée with a blender or hand mixer.
4. Add milk and stock cube. When the stock cube is dissolved, season with salt and pepper to finish.
5. I used the leftovers to make lunch the next day.
6. I posted a recipe for Asian sweet potato soup too, so please give it a try Recipe ID: 2042054
7. If you want to skip Step 1, you can add the sliced kabocha squash to the pot after you saute the onions and cook until soft. Follow all the other Steps as they are.
