Yesterday I posted my tutorial for making kabocha squash puree, in preparation for making this delicious soufflé! This is one of our favorites ways to enjoy kabocha squash. We make this all the time when it’s in season, from fall through early winter.
If you are like kabocha what??? No worries, you can easily substitute sugar-pie pumpkin or even canned pumpkin in this recipe. But, if you do notice some kabocha squash at the market, I encourage you to pick some up and try this recipe or even eat it simply roasted. Kabocha squash has a sweet flavor and a moist and fluffy texture. It’s really delicious!
This soufflé is also a great lower carb alternative to pumpkin pie.
