Red Kuri Squash Curry with Chard recommended by Hayley

A hearty vegan curry that features red kuri squash and swiss chard. You can easily add legumes to boost the protein!

  • 1 small onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 bunch of Swiss chard (about 6 ounces)
  • 1 red kuri squash (about 2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon mild curry powder
  • 2 teaspoon fresh ginger
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 1 can coconut milk (13.5 fl oz)
  • 1 cup low-sodium vegetable stock
  • Coriander (for topping)
  • Brown rice (for serving)
  1. Dice onion and mince garlic cloves.
  2. Remove stems from Swiss chard and slice greens into 1/2 inch wide ribbons.
  3. Remove stem of squash. Cut in half and scoop out seeds. Cube squash into 1/2 inch to 1 inch cubes.
  4. Heat coconut oil in a large pot over medium heat.
  5. Add onion and cook until translucent, about 5 to 8 minutes.
  6. Add garlic, curry powder, ginger, and salt and pepper. Let cook about 1 minute.
  7. Add cubed squash and stir until squash is well coated.
  8. Pour in coconut milk followed by the stock, stir, and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and let cook 30 to 40 minutes, until squash is very tender.
  9. Stir in Swiss chard and let cook until wilted, about 5 more minutes.
  10. Serve with a sprinkle of coriander over brown rice.

Tips & Tricks: The kuri squash skin is edible so no need to peel this squash!
The curry powder I used has quite a bit of heat, but feel free to add a pinch of cayenne for spice and color.
