Food has the power to transcend. One bite can take us to a different place and time. We used to love a little Italian restaurant in mid-city Los Angeles called Cube. Although Cube has been closed for years now, I still remember their delicious food, especially the kabocha squash soup on their autumn menu. Unlike many restaurant dishes that require chef-like technique and special ingredients, this soup is quite easy to make. This is not Cube’s recipe, but it is inspired by it.
Kabocha squash, like other winter squash varieties, is jam-packed with nutrients like potassium, vitamin A and vitamin C. Just one serving of this soup contains eighty percent of your daily need for vitamin A, helping to support good vision and a healthy immune system.
