Roasted Kabocha Squash and Brussel’s Sprouts

This meal really is very simple to prepare. The hardest part is probably prepping the kabocha squash. Begin by preheating your oven to 425*F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Gently scrub the squash and dry it thoroughly. Carefully cut the squash in half and remove the seeds. Side note: kabocha squash seeds make THE BEST roasted squash seeds (check out my recipe for them here).

I like to leave the skin on the squash. It’s loaded with fiber and, when roasted, adds a nice crispy crunchy texture to the curry. Cube the squash and lay it out in an even layer on the prepared baking sheet. Roast for 15 minutes.

Remove the squash from the oven and add the shaved Brussel’s sprouts. Roast for an additional 15 minutes stirring half way to prevent burning. When finished, remove from the oven and set aside. Resist the urge to taste test the squash. Ok, you can try it. I’ll admit, even I don’t have that kind of self-control.

Curry Sauce

While the squash and sprouts are roasting prepare the curry sauce. In a large cast iron skillet, add the red curry paste, coconut milk, vegetable broth, coconut aminos, creamy peanut butter, cinnamon, freshly grated ginger, and juice of a lime. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer. Allow to simmer for 30-40 minutes until the sauce is fragrant and it has thickened slightly.

While the sauce is simmering, prepare the noodles according to package directions. When finished drain and add to the sauce, along with the kabocha squash and Brussel’s sprouts. Stir to combine. Serve warm topped with basil and pomegranate arils and a side of vegan naan.
