I love the flavor of butternut squash, which makes a great addition to soups and stews. As you may have noticed, in a lot of my recipes I tend to include thyme as a part of my seasonings. Thyme for a Jamaican is like basil for an Italian. It’s an integral part of our cooking and we use it in most of our savory dishes, if not all. So I had to include thyme in this curry!

      Thank you Theresa, I love to get to the recipe right away but Google doesn’t love when I do. Hope you enjoy this recipe. I don’t like to make labor intensive meals 9 times out of 10.

      Place all the ingredients in the slower cooker and cook on high for 2-4 hours. You can also add 1-14 ounce can of chickpeas to add texture. Hope this helps

      You can use water alone instead. If you use oil and you have virgin cold processed coconut oil, then use it to saute the veggies and that will give the coconut flavor. If you eat almonds, then unsweetened almond milk would also work.
