    Great recipe. I added a bit more spices than the recipe called for. Definitely fulfilling and flavorful.

    Turned out really well! I might have cut the squash too big but it’s fine I left out the coriander bc I don’t like cilantro and I couldn’t find crushed tomatoes at the store.... I also added a lot more salt I used a 3.5 qt pot (?) but would recommend a 5qt probably

    It was pretty easy to make. The taste was great! The butternut squash takes some time to cube. And I used yellow curry paste instead of the powder.

    Great flavour! Mine was a bit watery but that could be because I used diced tomatoes instead of crushed tomatoes. Will definitely be making this again

    Great! Used frozen cubed butternut squash so that saved a lot of time. Also added shrimp and found that to be a great addition. Even my 3 year old ate it up!

    I used a jar of curry sauce, because I wanted too. However the concept is fantastic! I added chickpeas as she suggests and it was wonderful. I'll try again from scratch like her recipe states and comment again.

    It turned out really nice specially because I'm not a confident cook. So I definitely surprised myself. But I've put my own spin and added more chillies flakes (love spicy food), prawns, corn and sprinkled with some lemon juice after I finished. Really nice recipe!! Thanks.

    It was okay, but not spectacular. I served it with brown rice. It would have been good with some naan bread!

    This recipe was so easy and turned out great. A single butternut squash was plenty. I did add more salt when I added the spinach. Loved the peanuts on top!
