Simmered Beans and Kabocha

Simmered Beans and Kabocha

I added green beans and edamame to my usual simmered kabocha squash. It's easy! And good for bentos.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Kabocha squash
220 g
Green beans (frozen)
Edamame (frozen)
2 teaspoons
Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
1/4 teaspoon
2 teaspoons
Dashi stock granules
2 g


1. Cut the kabocha into bite-sized pieces. Defrost the edamame in water and remove the edamame from the pods. Cut the green beans in half.
2. Combine the kabocha, dashi stock granules, sugar, and enough water to cover (about 150 ml) in a pot and bring to a boil. Turn the heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes.
3. Add the salt, soy sauce, and mirin and simmer until the kabocha cooks through. Add the edamame and green beans and simmer for 2-3 minutes. It's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to change up my usual simmered kabocha, so I added some frozen edamame and green beans.
