Restaurant Chef Creates Vegan Ribs from Squash

Shaun King, executive chef for Las Vegas’ Momofuku restaurant, recently developed a new vegan dish: “ribs” made from squash.

The vegan Ribs dish features red kuri squash (also known as Hokkaido pumpkin) that is cured with a mixture of spices, then smoked and roasted for one hour before being fried.

King explained that the process develops a meaty, fork-tender texture that replicates its animal-based counterpart.

“While most people think of pumpkin as just being a Halloween decoration, I wanted to highlight the fruit in a new way,” King told VegNews.

“The inspiration behind this dish actually came from Kerry Clasby at Intuitive Forager, our farmers’ market resource. She brought us a wide variety of fall squashes, and I wanted to try the dish on her first since she is vegetarian.”

The dish is coated in a barbeque sauce that King makes with a base of carrot juice spiced with smoked guajillo peppers.

In addition to King, chefs around the country are experimenting with creating meat-like vegan dishes from whole fruit and vegetables.

At New York City’s Ducks Eatery, the watermelon ham—an entire watermelon smoked and spiced to resemble a whole ham—is available this holiday season.

King’s Ribs will be on the menu at Momofuku’s Las Vegas outpost in The Cosmopolitan hotel until the end of February, 2019.
