Prep Time: 25 min.
Cook Time: 50 min.

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375°F. Halve, seed and slice squash into thick wedges.

Place on a baking pan and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of oil. Toss lightly to coat and roast for about 35 minutes or until tender but not mushy; remove from oven and set aside to cool.

Remove skin from squash wedges if desired, then cut into 1-2 inch chunks; set aside.

Heat remaining oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté shallots, garlic and red pepper for 8 minutes.

Add coconut milk, curry paste, agave, soy sauce, chickpeas and cooked squash; simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro.

Serve hot garnished with additional cilantro, cashews and lime wedges. Makes 6 servings based on 1 cup per portion.

Chef’s Tip: You can substitute cooked chicken, pork or seared tofu for the chickpeas to mix things up!
