A spicy curried twist to the traditional autumn ingredients of squash and sausage.



Ingredients

  • 1 medium butternut or acorn squash (around 2 lbs.)
  • 6 to 8 Tbsp. vegetable oil, divided
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 lb. mild ground Italian sausage
  • 1 large white onion, diced
  • 1 tsp. fresh minced ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. Dehydrated Minced Garlic
  • 3 to 5 Tbsp. Ghost Curry Powder*
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, cored and small diced
  • 1 cup vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 1/2 lime, freshly squeezed
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint leaves

Notes

*Adjust amount of Ghost Curry Powder for desired heat level. 3 Tbsp. is hot and 5 Tbsp. approaches “Indian hot.”

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut squash in half, remove seeds, brush flesh side lightly with 1 Tbsp. oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place flesh-side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 30 to 45 min. until just tender and easily pierced with a knife. Remove from oven and set aside to cool. Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven. Add onions, ginger and garlic, and cook for 5 min. until soft. In a small bowl, mix an equal amount (3 to 5 Tbsp. depending on desired heat level) of Ghost Curry Powder, vegetable oil and water together to make a paste. Stir curry paste into onions, then add apples, broth, cider and coconut milk and bring to a medium simmer. Heat 1 Tbsp. oil in a separate skillet, add sausage and cook until browned. Meanwhile, peel skin from cooled squash and cube into 1/2- to 1-inch pieces. Stir sausage and squash into curry, bring to a simmer and cook for 5 to 10 more min. Remove from heat and stir in lime juice. Top with fresh mint before serving.

"Recently I had the opportunity to visit the store in St. Petersburg, FL. What a treat to meet those guys and be treated like one of their regulars! They were willing to break up a set for me so that I could get my Cuban Island Spice -- who does that?! So impressed with them as well."
