Warm Kabocha Squash and Mushroom Salad with Miso Mayonnaise

This is a delicious warm salad of kabocha squash and mushrooms. It's not sweet, so it's perfect as a side dish or as a drinking appetizer.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Kabocha squash
180 g (1/4 of a squash)
Mushrooms of your choice
100 g
☆ Vegetable oil (or olive oil)
1 tablespoon
☆ Cooking sake
1 tablespoon
☆ Salt and pepper
To taste
★ Miso
1 teaspoon
★ Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
★ Mayonnaise
1 teaspoon
★ Vinegar
1 teaspoon


1. Cut half a kabocha squash into 8 pieces. Microwave in a heatproof container and microwave for 3 minutes at 600 W. When the pieces are soft, cut into easy to eat pieces.
2. Heat oil in a pan over high heat. Stir fry the mushrooms for 30 seconds, then add the sake, salt and pepper, and stir fry to evaporate the water.
3. Put the ★ in a bowl and combine. Add the kabocha squash and mushrooms to the bowl and mix well. Done!
4. I also recommend Recipe ID: 492716 "All-purpose! Assorted Sauteed Mushrooms". They're very handy to have on hand.
