OH MY GOODNESS, i cannot believe i only discovered this squash at the age of 28. I had been missing out on so much joy 😂! What a delightful surprise this beautiful squash is, such an intense vibrant color and the flavor is so unique, it kinda tastes like a mix of chestnut and pumpkin, and this may sound weird but it tastes a bit like popcorn too 😂😱! This is my favorite way of eating it and It really does not need any additional flavors at all (in my opinion), just a little oil and salt!
