Tasty Tuesday: Winter Squash Stew

On this Tasty Tuesday, I want to wish my AMAZING daughter Belinda a “happy birthday”.

Thank you Alene Brennan for today’s recipe…

I know we had a summer relapse last week with temps near 90 but I think the fall weather is finally going to settle in OR at least I hope it does.

Prep Time: 5 minutes     Cooking Time: 15 minutes     Yields: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely minced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1 winter squash, seeded, peeled, chopped (butternut, acorn, pumpkin, delcata)
  • Veggie or chicken stock
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin

Directions:

  1. Sauté onions and garlic in olive oil until onions become translucent.
  2. In a pot place squash and fill with stock until just covered.
  3. Add curry powder, cumin, onion and garlic.
  4. Boil until squash becomes tender and remove pot from heat.
  5. With an immersion blender purée squash until smooth. (I prefer mine chunky)

Notes:   Add chopped fresh cilantro or parsley and/or toasted pumpkin seeds for garnish.

I’m the only one who eats squash in my house so there would be some leftovers….. Did you know Thirty One has a cool way to send your kids off with school lunches?  Our thermals got got a makeover with the Off to Lunch Thermal! This soft (but structured) insulated cooler bag is perfect for the school cafeteria or to add a dash of fun to the office. It also makes a great travel snack bag for road trips, the pool or daycare. A webbed top handle makes it easy to carry this reusable lunch bag, and an interior thermal lining keeps food cool or warm.
The best part about this cute thermal is it is part of Thirty One’s Online Extras…….so it is on sale for $24 BUT if you spend $35 on any item, you can get this for 1/2 price (plus one more item) for this month only.  That is a deal, right?
Have a blessed day!
