A savoury pumpkin side dish bursting with colour and flavour, perfect for autumn. Hokkaido pumpkins, also known as red kuri squash, originally from island Hokkaido, Japan, have a deep orange colour and are very sweet inside. You can use them in cooking, baking or simply enjoy them raw.

Hi Angie, I see Hokkaido slices at the supermarket often and its much nicer than the normal pumpkin. I've always steamed them and certainly never thought of making them roasted. Will try this out.

Looks so pretty Angie, especially the little topping on the pumpkin is a nice contrast for the idea. never heard of hokkaido pumpkin? Any difference with this type and the normal one that is so common in central europe?

StephenC 2/10/12 14:08

I will not find Hokkaido here, but plenty of other types of squash that would suffice for this beautiful dish. Thank you.

Velva 4/10/12 01:17

I don't think I have ever met a squash that I did not like- This one looks really delicious. I should hang my head low for I have never used fresh pumpkin. I eat plenty of other squashes but have slacked miserably with pumpkins.

Awesome.
