Kabocha Virgin

Yes, I admit. I am  WAS a Kabocha Squash Virgin. Since reading blogs from these lovely ladies- April, HEAB, & Alyson's, I have a found a new love for Kabocha and its versatile style. LOVE IT. So tonight I steamed and baked the squash for two different meals. For the steamed version, I used with Salmon and baby bok choy- YUMMY DINNER. (sorry for the crummy pics from my blackberry....camera is DEAD).


Tomorrow I will blend my baked Kabocha to use for our Easter pancakes. I think I'll try Alyson's Kabocha pancakes.

Kabocha Protein Pancake


1.5 scoops Cake Batter Protein Powder ( I only have Vanilla)

100 g Kabocha

1/4 c Egg Whites

1/8 tsp Cream of Tartar

1/4 c H20

Topping Options: WF Maple Syrup, Nut Pieces, Coconut, Coconut Butter, Nut Butter

If the Kabocha is cold, reheat in the microwave for ~1 minute, then purree in a food processor or blender. Mix all ingredients together on medium speed. Cook stovetop like a regular pancake.
I get giddy just thinking about it! haha! I'll post the outcome pic tomorrow. Lets hope it looks and tastes just as good as Alyson's.
 
Have a wonderful Easter!
 
Many Blessings,
LC
