Slow Cooker Asian Kabocha Squash

Miso-soya butter makes this squash almost melt in your mouth, in this easy slow cooker recipe. Simply throw all the ingredients together to make kabocha magic.

I’m getting into the slow cooker game thanks to a very convincing conversation I had with a few friends over a couple pints of beer a couple weeks ago. They all have tried it and they all love it. And after giving it a few test spins, I’m happy to say that my palate and schedule is very grateful and that I’m a major “convertee” as well.
