Butternut Squash and Coconut Curry Recipe
This vegan curry has the perfect blend of spice and creamy coconut. Packed full of veggie goodness, it's as healthy as it is delicious, making the perfect mid week meal.
1 tbsp vegetable oil
500g butternut squash (peeled and chopped into small chunks)
100g onions (chopped)
4 tbsp mild curry paste
400g can of chopped tomatoes
400g can of coconut milk
400g can of lentils
200g of baby spinach
150ml of coconut yoghurt
Heat the oil in a large pan and prepare the butternut squash by placing it in a bowl with a splash of water, covering with clingfilm and microwaving for 10 minutes until it is tender.
In the meantime, add the onions to the pan and fry off until they are softened.
Add in the curry paste, coconut milk and chopped tomatoes and simmer for 10 mins until it has thickened to a sauce.
Drain any liquid from the microwaved squash and add to the sauce, alongside the drained lentils, baby spinach and season with salt and pepper.
Simmer for 2-3 minutes to wilt the spinach and incorporate everything together, then stir in the coconut yoghurt.
Serve and enjoy!
