Yuzu Kabocha Soup


1. In a pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the shallots, garlic, and ginger and cook until slightly soft but not brown, about 2-3 minutes.

2. Add the kabocha and stock and bring up the heat to high until the soup comes to a gentle simmer. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the kabocha is tender, 20-30 minutes.

3. Once tender, carefully transfer to a blender and blend until smooth.

4. Pour the soup back into the pot and stir in the Bachan's Yuzu Japanese Barbecue Sauce. Taste and season with salt and freshly ground pepper.

5. Finish with a drizzle of extra Bachan's Yuzu Japanese Barbecue Sauce and pepitas.
