Now that you know what kabocha is, you must be dying to try out some new recipes for it This recipe is even new to me – neon green oat bran. Yes, I’m a nut.
To make your neon green oat bran, you need these ingredients:
- 1 cup chopped kabocha
- 2/3 cup oat bran + 1.5 cups water
- splash of vanilla (optional), pinch of salt
- 1-2 tablespoons raisins (optional; I didn’t use them today)
- 1-2 cups spinach (optional; I DID add it)
Directions: Steam the kabocha for 5-7 minutes. Cook your oat bran (with the vanilla, salt, and raisins if using). Put the steamed kabocha, oat bran, and spinach (optional) in the blender. Blend on high for about 30 seconds. Dump it into a bowl, making sure to scrape every last bit out of the blender! EAT. ENJOY.
This is like pumpkin oats, but a million times better. And it’s very macrobiotic. Squash + raw greens + whole grains = amazing for your body! It’s simple and delicious. Will you try it?
