Recipe

I have always had a fondness for curries and am constantly amazed by how much flavor is packed into both curry powder and curry paste. This version is made even easier by cooking everything in the slow cooker, although you could make it stove top as well. I decided to go with an Indian curry and used Madras curry powder but you could also use a Thai curry paste for a Thai inspired curry. Since curry powders and pastes can vary greatly in flavor, I suggest starting with two tablespoons and adjusting up from there. You can always add more. You can also add some cayenne pepper to the mix if you likes things extra spicy. Again just add a little extra at a time since you can always add more but its impossible to remove it. This freezes great.

    I was uncertain of how I would like this recipe, especially the butternut squash, as it sometimes cooks too sweet, but it really soaked in the curry flavor! Everything works really well and is delicious! (I forgot the peas, and used (a healthy amount of ) coconut oil in place of the olive oil and made it with Thai green curry paste, my fave! :-)
