Butternut squash is, by far, my favorite winter squash because it is a versatile ingredient. You can use it to make soups, salads, fried rice, cookies, and even mac and cheese! It is also quite easy to handle, compared to other winter squash with tough outer skin. All you need to do is trim the ends of the squash and peel off the skin with a vegetable peeler. If you are roasting them whole, you don’t even need to peel the skin at all.



This vegan butternut squash curry is the perfect weeknight dinner for the winter. It’s filling, flavorful, and comes together very quickly. I used curry powder, ground coriander, and red pepper flakes to flavor the dish, and you can find all of them in the spices section at Nugget Markets. I usually buy them from the bulk spices.

I also used fire-roasted crushed tomatoes to give acid and brightness to the butternut squash curry. The sweetness of the squash balances out the acidity of the tomatoes nicely. To finish off the dish, I tossed in several large handfuls of baby spinach. Honestly, I can never say no to more vegetables in my meals.

I know this vegan curry is a winner when my meat-loving husband won’t stop eating it. Try it sometime soon!


If you want to add protein to this butternut squash curry, I recommend adding chickpeas or pan-fried tofu. If you are not vegan, try pan-fried paneer, shredded chicken, or shrimp.

I served the curry with long-grain brown rice that I cooked in my Instant Pot. You can also serve it with white jasmine rice, quinoa, or millet. Honestly, any cooked grain (or even naan) that you have on hand will go well with the curry.
