Squash Curry

Number of Servings: 4 (847g)
Active Time: 10 minutes

As with many curries, this dish relies on coconut milk for liquid. Not all coconut milks are created equal, though. The coconut milk in a can is much higher in saturated fat, so we suggest trying the unsweetened coconut milk drinks that are sold from the dairy-free refrigerated case. Look for the Guiding Stars on the shelf tags to help you pick the best option.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 small butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cubed
  • 1 small eggplant, cubed
  • 1 green pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 red onions, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup mushrooms, quartered
  • ¼ cup water
  • 4 Tbsp. red curry paste
  • 1¾ cups unsweetened cultured coconut milk
  • 1 bunch parsley, chopped
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • ¾ cup quinoa, cooked
  • 1 lime

Directions

  • Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook all of the vegetables, stirring frequently, until vegetables are starting to soften (10-15 minutes).
  • Add the water, curry paste and coconut milk. Let it simmer until the vegetables are all thoroughly soft, adding water as needed to prevent the pan from going dry (20-25 minutes).
  • Stir in the parsley and cilantro. Serve hot over quinoa, topped with a squeeze of lime.
