Microwaved Authentic Tasting Simmered Kabocha Squash

Although this is cooked easily in the microwave, it has the sweet, smooth and delicous flavor of kabocha squash that's been simmered for a long time in a pan. The key is to watch the wattage of the microwave as you cook!


Kabocha squash
1/4 (about 350 g)
Flavoring ingredients
Soy sauce
1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon
140 ml


1. Cut the kabocha squash into bite size (about 3 cm square) pieces.
2. Put the flavoring ingredients into a deep container, and mix well. You can do this in the bowl you'll be serving the kabocha squash in to save time and effort.
3. Put the kabocha squash pieces in the container in a single layer skin side up. Cover loosely with plastic wrap. Microwave for about 6 minutes at 700 W, then 10 minutes at 150 W.
