Serves 2

Cooks in 45 Minutes


  • 1 tbsp. olive oil/water
  • 1 large brown onion peeled and diced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • tbsp chilli paste
  • 250ml water
  • 1 large butternut squash peeled and diced into 2 cm cubes
  • 2 tbsp peanut flour ( I used sukrin, but you could use any peanut powder here or replace with 2 large tbsp smooth peanut butter or cashew butter)
  • 1 can fully fat coconut milk
  • Salt & pepper to season


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C
  2. Start by roasting the squash. Line a baking tray and evenly spread out the cubed squash season with some salt and pepper (you can drizzle a little olive oil or dry roast) and roast for 20 minutes until tender and lightly browned around the edges.
  3. In a large saucepan over a low-medium heat add a drizzle of oil or water and sweat down the onion until translucent and tender – about 6-7 minutes with the lid on.
  4. Add in the garlic, chilli paste and roasted squash. Stir and let cook for 2 minutes.
  5. Pour in the water and bring to a simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. Remove from the heat, stir in the peanut flour and coconut milk, using a hand held blender or a food processor blend the mix until completely smooth.
  7. Season to taste.
  8. Serve alongside my pumpkin & hemp bread.
