Kabocha Squash with Ginger (Chao Nan Gua)

See the RecipeAndre Baranowski

This fragrant side dish, a Taiwanese favorite, can be made with several different kinds of squash; we've found that kabocha and butternut work best. The recipe appeared in "Taipei, Family Style," an April 2010 SAVEUR feature by the travel writer Matt Gross, whose wife's family is Taiwanese.
