Kabocha Pork Stir Fry

Kabocha Pork Stir Fry

It's the beginning of fall and various pumpkin recipes are starting to appear on websites and magazine. It made me think of sharing this easy and quick Kobocha recipe today. Kabocha is sometimes referred to as Japanese pumpkin or Kabocha squash in the US. It's a very nutritious vegetable with a very sweet flavor, even sweeter than butternut squash and it is rich in beta carotene. I used Korean seasoning called Gochujuang (hot pepper paste) for flavoring this dish.

I am a strong believer that veggies are important in our diet. I try to make my kids to eat as many vegetables as possible but it's not easy. My kids really enjoy this Brussels sprout recipe (most likely because there is bacon) so hopefully your family will enjoy it as well.
