  • Do not make this recipe unless you love the texture of acorn squash. No disrespect.

    We added sambal sauce because the mixture tasted overly sweet. - 11/27/13

  • It was a very tasty recipe although the color was a bit off. I did add spinach to it and it tasted great. - 1/19/12

  • I loved this! I served it as a soup, and because it is quite rich in flavor, I think I would enjoy it more over rice. Also, my daughter (age 11) found it a bit too spicy. So if you're serving it to kids or someone who prefers milder food, you might try just one Tbsp of curry, and go from there. - 10/26/09

  • What a great way to make curry! I did not have Shitake Mushrooms so I left them out and added frozen peas. I added tofu and topped with toasted almonds as suggested and it was awesome! Oh, and I microwaved the squash for a quicker meal. - 10/2/08
