Butternut Squash, tofu and pea curry

This is DELICIOUS and ridiculously easy and quick. I found the recipe in a cute little veggie cook book I purchased the other day

serves 4

prep 15 muns

cooking 25 mins

  • 1 tablespoon oil (i used coconut oil)
  • 1 tablespoon ready made Thai red curry paste, you could use green. You could make you own 🙂
  • 500g deseeded butternut squash, cubed. I don’t peel squash when I use it, I just give it a good scrub
  • 500 ml veg stock
  • 400g tin of coconut milk
  • 6 kaffir lime leaves (i used dried from the supermarket)
  • 200g frozen peas
  • 300g firm tofu, cubed (i used silken tofu and it was ok)
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce ( I used tamari as it’s wheat free)
  • juice of 1 fresh lime (i used bottled because i didnt have fresh)
  • chopped fresh coriander to garnish (i used lots)
  • finely chopped red chilli to garnish (didn’t use becuase the red thai paste was HOT)


Heat the oil in a wok or deep frying pan, add curry paste and fry over gentle heat for a few minutes.

Add the squash, stir fry for a bit and add stock, coconut milk and lime leaves.

bring to a gentle boil, reduce heat, simmer gently for 10 minutes or until squash is tender

stir in the peas, tofu, soy sauce and lime jiuce and simmer for a further 5 minutes.

Serve with fresh coriander and chilli garnish
