- 1 small buttercup squash seeds removed, cut into cubes
- 2 pieces kelp
- 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
Put all ingredients into a large pot. If steaming, put steamer tray in the bottom of the pot.
Fill the pot with enough water to cover the squash. If steaming, fill up as far as the tray. Remember to check frequently so you don't run out of steaming water.
Boil for about 15 minutes, longer if steaming, or until tender when pierced with a fork.
Serve as a side dish with or without a little of the stock.
