5 GLAZED RED DATES WITH KABOCHA SQUASH

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups of Kabocha squash/Japanese pumpkin, diced
  • 1/2 cup of red dates
  • 1 Tbsp rock sugar (if no rock sugar brown sugar/white sugar is fine)
  • 2 Tbsp of cooking oil
  • 2 cups water
  • A pinch of salt

DIRECTIONS

Step 1
Soak the red dates in water until they are soft, then cut into small pieces. Set aside.
Step 2
Heat oil in medium size frying pan on medium heat, add pumpkin and saute. Then add water (just enough to cover the pumpkin), cover pan and bring to a boil. When water reaches a boil, turn heat down and let simmer. Add salt to taste. Turn heat to low and simmer until pumpkin is soft.
Step 3
While pumpkin is simmering prepare the red date sauce. Add red dates, 2/3 cups of water, and 1 tablespoon of rock sugar and bring to a boil. Keep stirring until the sauce thickens.
Step 4
Pour the sauce on top of the pumpkin, and serve.
