Organic Hokkaido Squash

A hard shelled, winter variety of squash. These squash are a perfect size and shape for stuffing and whole roasting but they are also great roasted, pureed and used as a basis for all manner of baking.

Don't waste your squash seeds either, soaked and dehydrated roasted or toasted they make a nutritious snack or addition to a meal.

Reason to eat squash:

  • Squash is packed with beta carotene - a compound research has shown to help prevent the uncontrollable growth cycle that occurs in cancerous cells
  • Diets rich in lutein and zeaxanthin - both compounds found in squash - were found in a long term study to result in significantly less cataract formation.
  • Contains high levels of magnesium which helps to keep the right balance of 'good' to 'bad' cholesterol and reduce the risk of gallstone formation.
