Ingredients

  • 1 Medium butternut squash peeled and seeded, (2- 2.5lbs)
  • 3 Tbsps Coconut oil, melted
  • 2 Cups White onion, roughly chopped
  • 1.5 Tbsps Garlic, diced
  • 4 Cups Sodium-reduced chicken broth (or veggie for vegan version)
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2.5 Tsps Yellow curry powder
  • 3/4 Cup Light coconut milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Chop the squash into 2 inch chunks and toss with 2 Tbsps. of melted coconut oil.
  • Spread the squash evenly on a baking sheet, and bake for 30-35 minutes, until fork tender.
