  • Incredible!

    Used frozen butternut squash purée in place of fresh squash chunks --- saved steps. Also added spices: 1 tsp ground turmeric, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1/4 tsp ground cloves. Garnished with fresh, chopped green onion, peanuts, and raisins. Chutney would be a good condiment. - 8/12/15
