Butternut Squash Curry

Here’s a great recipe from Everyday Recipe with a few modifications from our amazing client Emily!



















Butternut Squash Curry :

-16oz of chopped up butternut squash

-2 pounds of shrimp or other seafood/protein of your choice

-2 carrots, sliced

-1 medium yellow onion, diced

-4 small zucchinis, diced

-1 1/2 cups coconut milk

-1 cup chicken stock

-2 TB coconut oil

-1 tsp fresh grated ginger

-1 tsp crushed garlic

-1 tsp coriander

– tsp Cayenne pepper (if you like that spice)

-1/2 TB turmeric powder

-sea salt and pepper to taste

-cilantro for garnish


1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. Cut the pumpkin in half and remove the seeds (save them for roasting). Place the pumpkin cut side up in a glass baking dish with about a cup of water in the bottom of the dish and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

3. In a large soup pot, saute the onion and carrots in the coconut oil over medium heat until the onions become translucent

4. Turn up the heat on the onions and carrots to medium high, scoop out just the cream off the top of the coconut milk and add to the hot soup pot. Let it sizzle and stir until the cream is melted and mixed well with the onions and carrots. Turn down to medium low and let it simmer.

5. While the coconut cream, onion and carrots are simmering, scoop the roasted pumpkin into a food processor or blender along with the remaining coconut milk, the chicken broth, and all of the spices. Process or blend until completely smooth.

6. Add the zucchini to the soup pot and pour the pumpkin mixture into the pot as well. Mix well and bring to a simmer.

7. Add the peeled and de-veined shrimp to the soup and cook until the shrimp are pink and firm (about 3-4 more minutes).

8. Serve in bowls topped with fresh chopped cilantro.

NOTE – *If using a different protein, such as chicken, add the chicken in immediately after you add the coconut cream into the pot to give it enough time to cook prior to adding the zucchini and remaining ingredients. Do not add at the same time as the zucchini or your zucchini will turn into mush.

“Ready” to eat
