Roasted butternut squash Thai style curry
- 1 Butternut squash
- 3 generous spoonfuls of Southernlands honey
- 1 Aubergine
- 3 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 red onion, peeled and finely sliced
- 3 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
- 1 green chilli, chopped (seeds left in)
- 1 Large bunch of coriander, blitzed in a processor
- 1/2 tsp Lemongrass paste
- Grated ginger
- 2 large Portobello mushrooms
- 250g Natural yoghurt
- Pinch of salt
In large chunks, coat the butternut squash with the honey
and roast in a roasting tray in 1 tbsp of coconut oil for approx. 15 mins on a medium heat. While the squash is roasting chop and fry the onions and garlic in 1 tbsp of coconut oil on a low to medium heat, do not let these brown too much. Add in the mushrooms and the butternut squash. Cook for 10 minutes until they start to soften and colour, then add the aubergine. Add the rest of the coconut oil, the chilli and some grated ginger. Season with the salt. Cook this together on a low to medium heat until the butternut squash starts to fall apart. Add the yoghurt, coriander and lemongrass and mix in the pan and leave to cook out for another 15-20 minutes. The squash should have incorporated itself into the sauce.
Make sure with this recipe to leave the veggies in large chunks which looks and tastes great.
