I whizzed kabocha squash into a soup with bacon and spices. It has ginger in it, so it helps you warm up.
I bought a variety of kabocha squash, so I turned it into a spicy soup.
I used bacon that isn't very fatty, but it's salty so be sure to taste before adding more salt. Adjust the amounts of cream, milk and spices to taste.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
