  • 1 large kabocha squash halved and roasted
  • ΒΌ cup full-fat canned coconut milk + more for serving
  • 2 tablespoons to 3 honey to taste
  • 2 tablespoons whisky optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon to 1/2 ground cinnamon to taste
  • Pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Cut the kabocha squash in half and scoop out the innards and seeds. Drizzle with olive oil, sea salt and cinnamon and place cut-side down on a baking sheet.
  3. Bake on the center rack of the oven for 45 to 55 minutes, or until flesh is very soft when poked with a fork.
  4. Once squash is cool enough to handle, scoop out the flesh into a bowl. Add the coconut milk, honey, cinnamon, and sea salt. Mash and stir until everything is well combined. Taste kabocha squash for flavor. Add more cinnamon, sea salt, and/or honey to taste.
  5. Serve with additional coconut milk, pumpkin seeds, and pecans
