Just discovered how delicious Calabaza is!

coll | Jan 30, 2011 03:55 AM

I needed a little vegetable sidedish to go with my turkey dinner so bought one of those cut hunks of Calabaza. I thought it was butternut squash when I saw it, and subsequently figured it must be similar; so roasted in olive oil, with some cinnamon, cumin, salt and pepper. Wow! Maybe I just hit it lucky, but it cooked up like custard, I couldn't believe the texture was so soft when I didn't do anything special. Hope it wasn't just beginner's luck! I will be buying more before the week is out.
