Butternut squash black bean stew.


This is a fairly simple yet delicious comfort dish.

I kinda read a few recipes and then threw some things in the pot and hoped for the best so here goes!!

Your going to need:

1 medium onion finely diced

2 garlic cloves finely minced

1 tsp turmeric powder

1 tsp dried herb mix

1 small butternut squash peeled and diced medium

1 red bell pepper or capsicum diced into small pieces

1 can of black beans rinsed

1 can of coconut milk 1 can of water rinse the can out!

2 handfuls of rinsed kale in smallish pieces


Ok so heat a medium saucepan with a splash of coconut oil or whatever oil you like to cook with in there, sauté off your onions an garlic with the turmeric and herbs.

Then add in your squash and red bell pepper mix it up a bit then pour over the coconut milk rinse out the coconut milk can the add some water also to the post to just cover the vege.

Cook until the vege is soft to the bite, then add in your black beans and kale mix it all up an simmer for a few more mins.

I also added in a handful of chopped parsley and coriander on top cos I’m all about the greens at the moment.

This is  meal in itself if you feel you need it you can have some rice on the side.


Any questions please get in touch, always here.

love always
