Butternut squash keeps for pretty long on my counter, so I always love to use it to decorate my countertop during the fall season. It helps to add that warm and cozy feeling to our home.


I consider myself to be the queen of making simple and easy curries that are perfect weeknight dishes that the entire family will love! Check out my Black Bean And Butternut Squash stew!

Here is a list of some of my other delicious curries.



How To Make Butternut Squash Coconut Curry

Check out the video on How To Peel And Chop Butternut Squash

To make Butternut Squash Coconut Curry, peel and cut butternut squash into cubes, saute the onion, garlic, ginger, curry powder, paprika, and thyme. Add butternut squash cubes and stir to coat. Add coconut milk, veggie broth, and cook until squash is tender. Stir in salt and pepper and serve.

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!
