Have you guys tried Kabocha squash yet?

It’s so good! To me, it’s kind of a miracle vegetable that can be used as a great low carb substitute for potatoes, particularly sweet potatoes (my favorite♥️). It’s sweet and delicious.

I have used Kabocha in a few recipes and I’m always pleased with the results. I made Banh Tet, a Vietnamese pastry to celebrate the New Year, and it was a great mung bean dupe.

Kabocha goes great in curry. I’ve used it in several curry dishes. They are a great addition to soups too. In addition to savory dishes, they can serve as a great substitute for pumpkin or sweet potato pie.

Today, I made Air Fry Kabocha Wedges. Oh my goodness, it was so good. I have always love sweet potato anything. Since going keto, I haven’t been eating sweet potato fries.

The key to preparing Kabocha is to microwave it for a few minutes before cutting into it. It’s easier to cut when it’s soft, otherwise you’ll be using a lot of strength to crack it open. Trust me, I’ve tried both ways.

If this is your first time, stay close and monitor the fries so it doesn't burn. All air fryers are little bit different. I have the Cuisinart AF and am familiar with how it works. Yours my run hotter or cooler.
