Another recipe I copied from the Whole Foods Market. Great vegan dish if served without the garnishes.

What a tasty, warming soup. Very easy to put together too. We cooked the squash in stock and crumbled cheese over the finished soup. This was our first time eating kabocha, and it's delicious and surprisingly sweet.
