Vegan Thai Curry with Kabocha Squash

I recommend keeping a can of coconut milk and a jar of Thai curry paste in your kitchen at all time. If you have those two things it’s very easy to throw together a quick, satisfying dinner. This recipe includes Kabocha squash, but you could easy use potatoes, sweet potatoes or a different type of squash.


The hardest part of this recipe is cutting the darn squash. Those little buggers are tough. I find a small pairing knife to be the best tool for cutting it down to size.

Once you’ve wrestled the squash in to cubes, you can use a shaper knife to remove the peel. You can eat it with the peel on, but I like to remove most of it.

This makes a thick curry, you can add a little extra stock if you want it soupy. I serve mine over rice, but rice noodles would also be excellent.
