Butternut squash and coconut curry

October 31, 2012

I usually have an array of go-to vegetarian recipes up my sleeve but I’m cooking for a friend who doesn’t actually eat a lot of vegetables. Knowing she’s a fan of butternut squash, but having previously made a risotto for her, I wanted to try a new recipe. I came across this one on the Good Food website (where I get most of my recipes from if I’m not using a cookbook). It is possibly the quickest and easiest veggie curry I have ever made.

The only ingredients you need are one large butternut squash (cut into cubes), 2 tablespoons madras curry paste (I favour Veeraswarmy’s), 1 red pepper cut into chunks, a can of coconut milk and a small bunch of coriander to garnish. I also added a can of drained chickpeas to my recipe to add a little more texture and flavour.

The next time I make the curry I am going to try out this recipe for spiced flat breads, it would make the perfect side dish to an otherwise simple dinner.

    I’m so in love with butternut squash. The thought of pairing it with coconut milk is fantastic. I’m a recent veggie, and I’m always looking for new recipes. This looks great!
