In this recipe, kabocha, also known as Japanese pumpkin, is stewed in sake until tender then tossed with miso for umami flavor. The result is soft winter squash with a unique flavor that's slightly sweet and a little salty. This quick and simple recipe can be turned into a complete meal by serving the stewed kabocha with rice and green vegetables.
