Using the Butternut Squash

‘Tis the season for butternut squash and instead of always making soup, which is lovely, we’re trying to find other ways to eat it.

I found this recipe for butternut squash and chickpea curry from Julia over at (she has amazing recipes, so check out her website) and decided to try it out. We ended up having it on Monday, not on purpose, but if you take part in meatless Monday then this is perfect for you. Click the source for the recipe.



I made a few changes to the recipe. I’m not a huge fan of frozen peas, so we left them out and I used a garam masala paste to make it a bit spicier.

I made nearly a double batch so that we could have some for lunch the next day and it was even nicer on Tuesday. So, I’d definitely recommend making a lot and keeping it for later in the week!

    Looks great, I happen to have a butternut squash, and probably chick peas too, so I will go and check out the recipe, thanks.

    Butternut squash is good in so many recipes and I like it just by itself with a little brown sugar and butter.

      I’ve had sweet sweet potato but never sweet butternut squash!

      Thanks Frances! The photos aren’t mine though. They’re from the recipe’s website.

    Mmmmm… interesting! Pumpkin and peas… sorry, chickpeas!! Sounds far too vegan for me but as I also don’t like peas I’ll have to find a way of tweaking it!! But… isn’t that part of the fun? 😉
