Go Big or Go Home

"Go Big or Go Home" they say, so I brought the big home

I found these two jumbo Kabocha Squashes 
after digging to the bottom of the Squash Barrel

Unfortunately the camera doesn't capture just how large each squash is

Cut in half; the view inside

One whole squash cut into cubes and tossed 
into a roasting pan lined with parchment paper

Tucked underneath the squash is an assortment of green vegetables 
(see last photo), and roasted in the oven for 1 hour at 400 Fahrenheit

Eden Organic Yellow Mustard and Western Family Spicy Brown Mustard

I love using different mustard varieties as "dressings" for my meals

After baking, I squeeze liberal amounts of 
mustard over top of the steaming hot squash

Oh! I forgot to mention that before going in the oven, I seasoned the squash with
 Sage, Thyme, Ground Rosemary, Cayenne Pepper, Garlic Powder and Cinnamon

The vegetables underneath included Brussels 
Sprouts, Kale, Broccoli, Spinach and Red Onion

Questions: Do you like Mustard?
 What is your favourite condiment?

I am an equal opportunist when it comes to mustard! I love them all. I never think to mix them and I need to try after seeing what you do with them! It looks so good!

Yum! Looks delish :)

... I don't like mustard, however... the more I experiment with it I'm beginning to acquire a taste for it. So far I've really bend fond of wasabi mustard and i Korea I was able to find pineapple mustard (anything with pineapple to me is a weakness so). Does maple syrup count as a condiment? I'm really not a condiment person :|

But yours definitely looks delish!

I finally found some Kabocha yesterday and I think I'll turn orange eating them all, though none were monster squash ;)

I wish I could eat the skin on them - you must have an amazing stomach to digest all of that fibre - I can't imagine eating the squash, skin, broccoli kale etc!

I loooove mustard! I eat it every day, with a toast with bacon or cheese. So so good!

I love mustard! It is a must for my sandwiches! I've never tried using it on squash though. I bet I'd like it. :D

I like mustard ... especially Dijon, or the grainy stuff. I love all condiments, but soy sauce or Sriarcha are probably my faves.

Wow, that is a lot of squash! It looks like you made delicious use of it.

Done in true Snacking Squirrel Style.

When it comes to roasted root veg? You go that in the bag.

I like mustard....when it comes to consiments I go in stages. One week ketchup, the next salsa...

My favorite condiment of all time is nutritional yeast. I am amazed that you seem to never use it!

Those Kabochas are huge! Definitely worth digging for. (:

I'm not a huge mustard fan, but I do eat it occasionally. I have a ridiculous addiction to ketchup. I feel like every meal I eat is accompanied by either that or salsa. It's become almost humorous.

Ooh, I can see from the picture just how crispy and delicious that squash was! I've never tried mustard on it - my favourite condiment is ketchup all the way - but now you mention it, I might have to give it a go... :-)

Yum, Kabocha!! I think your camera definitely captured the size of those squash, lol ;) I've never thought of putting mustard on roasted squash, but I'll have to try it on the Delicata I bought yesterday!

I love mustard! everyone in my family seems to be more of a ketchup type but my heart has always belonged to mustard :) (especially the dijon and honey varieties)

Yum! Huge and tasty looking Kabocha! For condiments, I do love horseradish sauce or soy, dijon is another favorite :)

I love mustard. As a kid I didn't care for it at all. I have never purchased a Kabocha squash!
