Easy One Pot Soup with Kabocha Squash

You can make this in one pot and don't need to strain it! It's easy but really tasty soup with the sweetness of kabocha squash.

Ingredients: 3~4 servings

Kabocha squash
1/4 (220 g without skin and seeds)
20 g
200 ml
Consomme soup stock cube
200 ml
Heavy cream (optional)
50 ml
Salt and pepper
a small amount


1. Remove the seeds from the kabocha squash, then peel and cut it into small pieces so that it cooks faster. Chop the onion finely.
2. If you have a hard time peeling the kabocha squash, you can place the kabocha pieces on a chopping board and cut the skin off.
3. Melt the butter in a pot and cook the onion until translucent.
4. Add the kabocha, water and consomme stock cubes and cook over medium heat.
5. Cook until the liquid is reduced by half and the kabocha squash is easily broken.
6. Reduce the heat to low, mash the kabocha squash with a wooden spatula and make it into a paste.
7. Add the milk little by little and season with salt and pepper. Add the heavy cream, and it's ready.
8. If the kabocha squash isn't sweet enough, add a small amount of honey (or sugar) to make it tastier.
