Kabocha Squash Bites Recipe
Make these Kabocha Squash Bites as a healthy alternative to tator tots.
Kabocha Squash is a winter Squash often referred to as a Japanese Pumpkin in Japan. Kabocha Squash is full of nutrients and antioxidants. It really has a good flavor especially when you roast it.
I leave the skin on so the Squash Bites can be eaten as finger food. Dip them in ketchup or your favorite sauce. A great way to get the kids to eat Squash!
