Butternut Squash Curry


I love curries - especially ones that are chock-full of veggies. This dish is perfect to make at the beginning of the week and enjoy for lunch because it will keep you full until dinner time. And it's a great meal to make for any of your vegan friends or those with food allergies since it's naturally gluten-free and dairy-free.

For added protein, simply add one can of drained chickpeas or 1 block of drained extra-firm or fried tofu (diced).



1. Melt coconut oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add butternut squash and cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring often, until lightly softened.

2. Add spices and curry paste and stir to combine.


3. Add coconut milk, lime juice and honey and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover the pan and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the squash is tender.


4. Add spinach and cook until wilted, about 1 minute. Taste the sauce and season with salt as needed.

5. Scoop rice into serving bowls and ladle curry over. Garnish with a generous amount of crushed peanuts.
