Before You Cook

  • 1

    Cook the Rice

    Bring a small pot with basmati rice, 1 cup water, half the seasoning blend (reserve remaining for squash), and a pinch of salt to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender, 14-17 minutes. Remove from burner and set aside. While rice cooks, prepare ingredients.

  • 3

    Start the Squash

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add butternut squash to hot pan and stir occasionally until beginning to brown, 3-4 minutes. Stir in remaining seasoning blend and curry paste and cook until aromatic, 2-3 minutes.

    Make Sauce and Finish Squash

    Stir coconut milk into pan and bring to a simmer. Simmering liquids will still be bubbling slightly. Cover, and simmer until squash is tender and sauce is slightly thickened, 11-13 minutes. Add peas and cook until warmed through, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner and stir in cilantro and 1 tsp. lime juice. Taste, and add remaining lime juice if desired.
