How to Make Butternut Squash “Noodles”

If you can’t find these at your local grocery store (we sometimes buy already made butternut squash “noodles” at Whole Foods if we are short on time) you can spiralize them at home! A few tips:

  • Buy the straightest and longest butternut squash you can find. You can’t spiralize the bulb at the end, so look for a long one!
  • Remove the bulb and reserve for another use. Peel the squash really well, trim the tip off and cut in half so it’s easier to handle.
  • Spiralize using the large noodle fitting! We like this spiralizer:

Curry Butternut Squash Noodles

Prep Time 00:15 Cook Time 00:15 Total Time 00:30 Serves 4-6

Ingredients

Directions

Make the curry broth: Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. When hot add ginger, garlic, red pepper flakes, green curry paste and cumin. Stir and cook for 1 minutes.

  1. Add in coconut milk, lime juice, fish sauce, coconut sugar and sea salt. Whisk to combine.  Bring sauce to a boil and then lower the heat to low, and let simmer for 10-15 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
  2. Meanwhile sauté vegetables: Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large sauté pan. Add peppers, onions, and a pinch of salt and cook until onions turn translucent and the peppers have started to softened, about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add butternut squash "noodles" and sauté for an additional 5-7 minutes.  If adding the spinach, add at the end and toss until wilted.
  4. Divide vegetables in serving bowls and pour curry sauce over. Garnish with cilantro, scallions, and red chili pepper, if using, and enjoy immediately.

Recipe Notes

  1. For keto or whole 30 omit the coconut sugar.
  2. This dish isn’t very spicy, but has a kick. If you don’t like spicy food, start with 1/4 teaspoon green curry paste and add more to taste while the sauce is cooking!
  3. You can add any veggies to this dish that you have on hand! Potatoes, carrots, corn, spinach, etc. If you add vegetables, add them in step 5 along with the peppers and onions with the exception of dark leafy greens such as spinach and kale. Add the leafy greens once the butternut squash has cooked for at least 5 minutes in step 6 and cook the leafy green just until it starts to wilt. If added before, the greens will be overcooked.

Sheet Pan Curry Chicken and Vegetables

Why make dinner on a sheet pan?

We love sheet pan recipes for so many reasons! They are simple to prepare, do not require hands on cooking time and are packed with flavor! Yes, there are a few steps to follow in these recipes, but aside from mixing a few ingredients together or chopping a few vegetables, the cooking process is mostly hands-off! This means that while dinner is baking in the oven, you can get ahead on some household chores or spend some times with the family instead of standing over the stove babysitting a recipe. Check out the tips below to make sheet pan cooking a breeze.

Sheet Pan Curry Chicken and Vegetables

Tips for sheet pan cooking:

  • Read the recipe all the way through (of course) and plan to use a timer! Most recipes require different cooking times, so make sure to use a timer so you can truly walk away from the oven and not have to worry about when your adding anything in to the oven.
  • Do the prep ahead of time: Cut vegetables, make sauce or mix spices the night before or that morning if you are looking to speed up the process when it comes time for the actual cooking.
  • Use parchment paper to make clean up a breeze.
  • Use the correct size sheet pan. When we say sheet pan we are referring to the rimmed half sheet pan which is 18″ by 13″. The size of the sheet pan matters because you do not want to overcrowd the pan when cooking, so if you are using a smaller sheet pan you may need to use 2 to achieve the same result.
