Easy Macrobiotic Kabocha Squash Pudding step by step
- Steam the kabocha squash, peel the skin, and put into a food processor. (I peeled it this time 'round for the sake of the photos, but you can also use unpeeled kabocha. It will result in a pudding with a slightly rougher texture, but it's still delicious.).
- Combine all ○ ingredients in a food processor and blend..
- Now put all the ● ingredients into a small pan. Bring to a boil, and simmer for 1 minute (to eliminate the grainy texture of kanten)..
- Add the kanten mixture from Step 3 to the Step 2 blended kabocha mixture, and also add the vanilla beans (if using). Bring it to the boil again and let simmer for 2 and a half minutes until thick and smooth. (The mixture will thicken as a result of heating the kudzu flour.).
- Turn the heat off and let it cool down slightly (if you're using vanilla essence instead of vanilla beans, add it at this point). Pour into a mold and chill in the fridge for an hour..
- Remove from the mold and slice. Decorate with toppings of your choice. (Here, I used adzuki beans that I already had steamed. They're unsweetened, but still go great with the pudding)..
