Spiced Kabocha Squash Soup
This spicy, slightly sweet, and richly textured soup is a wonderful addition to a Thanksgiving meal, but its warming satisfaction can be enjoyed throughout the fall and winter. Kabocha squash is loaded with nutrients, so much so that in Japan there is a saying: "Eating kabocha on the first day of winter keeps you from catching a cold." Because uncooked kabocha squash can be difficult to cut, I bake the whole squash, wrapped in aluminum foil, in the oven for about 1 ½ hours until very tender. See all kabocha recipes.

Winter Squash Soup with Citrus-Mint Pesto
With their brilliant orange-colored flesh, winter squashes are the kings of winter vegetables. Whether roasted, pan-sautéed, cooked in soups or stews, or puréed, they’re delicately flavorful and imbue a lovely sweetness. This recipe starts with a white wine reduction which enhances the wonderful natural sweetness, but also brings a bit of tang to the soup. Topped with a swirl of the citrus-mint pesto, this soup has bright flavors and a silky-smooth texture, and is also gorgeous to look at. Click here to see 10 Vegetarian Recipes.

Soba Noodles in Mushroom Broth with Taro and Kabocha Squash
I couldn't wait to dive into this big bowl of nourishment. Japanese soba noodles swim in a savory mushroom broth dense with taro root, daikon, carrot, and kabocha squash. A Japanese market is where you will find: Naga negi, which looks like an oversize green onion (you can substitute a leek); bunashimeji mushrooms are petite, brown button-topped mushrooms sold in clusters (enoki mushrooms can be used in their place); look for precooked soba noodles, in either the frozen foods section or the refrigerator case; you'll find shichimi togarashi, a Japanese spice blend, in the spice aisle.

Puréed soups don’t have to be boring. Here, candied pumpkin seeds yield a pleasant crunch with every bite, and the use of kabocha puts a fresh spin on butternut squash soup.
