This roasted butternut squash curry is so satisfying, DELICIOUS, and healthy!! I use leftover roasted butternut squash to make this curry in a hurry. Its packed with flavor and the perfect weeknight meal! Oh- and its vegetarian and vegan!
1/2 butternut squash
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup red lentis
1 shallot, chopped
6 brussels sprouts, thinly sliced
1/2 inch piece of ginger- peeled and grated
1/2 can full fat coconut milk
Juice of 1/2 lime
1/2 tablespoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne
The first thing you want to do is cook your butternut squash. I personally like to do this the day before so dinner is ready quick the next night! Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Carefully cut the butternut squash in half longways and discard the seeds
Drizzle the cut side of the butternut squash with salt and pepper. Put the butternut squash cut side down on a parchment lined sheet tray. Bake 15 minutes cut side down, then flip over cut side up and bake another 45 minutes or until cooked through. Let it cook slightly
In a small pot add the water and lentils. Bring to a boil then reduce to medium and let it cook about 15 minutes or until the lentils are cooked through. Make sure you stir occasionally they like to stick!
While the lentils are cooking heat up a large saute pan over medium high heat. Give a drizzle of grapeseed oil and add in the chopped shallot with a pinch of salt and pepper
Once the shallot is cooked add in the sliced brussels sprouts and grated ginger. Cook about 5 minutes
While the brussels sprouts are cooking add the butternut squash (make sure to only add in the flesh not the skin), coconut milk, lime juice, and spices. Blend on high until completely pureed
Add the butternut squash mixture to the brussels sprouts and mix together. Check the seasoning and add salt and pepper if needed
Once the lentils are done cooking add it to the curry and stir to combine
Serve over rice with chopped fresh cilantro and a lime wedge. Yum!
