Butternut Squash and Almond Butter Curry

It’s April and still the weather is grey, cold, rainy and miserable. My tomato plant has died, as it’s been literally drowned by all the rain and Tilly (cat) is permanently attached to my lap, snoring her little heart out and dreaming of sunny days where she can bask on her back and chase butterflies. Comfort food is being craved left, right and centre and instead of bbq’s and sun-kissed meals outside, we are enjoying home cooked comforts in front of the wood burner!

This butternut squash and almond butter curry has been a favourite in our household for quite a while now. It’s very different, but just as delicious to my roasted tomato and butternut squash curry that I know is a firm favourite amongst so many of you. A few less ingredients and a little less effort- what more could you ask for!? I like to serve ours with some cauliflower rice, but you could serve it with any thing you desire or why not try it with my healthy friendly cumin flat breads ?

This dish is flavour packed, with a thick and creamy sauce and lots of texture. It’s also bursting with nutrients and vitamins. I love to add fresh coriander when serving, but if that doesn’t take your fancy then do leave it out! The nut butter I use is in this recipe is the crunchy version by My Protein .
