Welcome to Kabocha Kitchen - a blog for healthy and delicious Japanese-inspired meals. Many of the recipes found here are based on meals that Japanese school children get to eat every day for lunch. (Trust me - they taste good and are good for you!) Others, are of my own creation. Here, you'll find a bit of whimsy, a bit of seasonality, but most of all something delicious.
Make a Meal!
This exciting meal lunch highlights the best of what the fields and forests have to offer when overflowing with autumnal bounty. From the ripe vegetable patches come pumpkin, sweet potato and carrot; from the orchards, apples; from the forests, mushrooms, burdock root, chestnuts and pig! This scrumptious meal embodies the rich, sweet and savory, and satisfying flavors found in the golden days of the season.
