My obsession with butternut squash continues! I just can’t get enough if it and I love finding new ways to make it, like in this delicious curry. I roasted the butternut squash until tender and combined it with bell peppers and onions. I added cashews for some crunch, cilantro and lime wedges to finish with a touch of freshness.
There are quite a few ways to label this dish; Vegan, Paleo, Whole30, Keto, Grain free, etc. It is all of the above but also delicious and so comforting! There’s something about the sweet coconut milk and the warm flavor of curry that just can’t be beat, it makes you feel warm inside.
I served this curry with cauliflower rice, (just because I want to eat more veggies) Here’s your perfect meatless Monday meal.
