MainRecipesSidedish | Spicy Squash Stew

   Spicy Squash Stew submitted by Mom Johnson
This ingredient list is long but is well-worth the Indian-spiced flavor...the stew is also high in potassium, an important mineral that helps keep blood pressure in check. I added more fresh spinach!

Heat canola oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion; saute 4 minutes or until onion is tender. Add garlic and 1/4 tsp. salt, saute 1 more minute. Add curry powder, cumin, corainder, cinnamon, and pepper; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in the squash, parsnip, broth, and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until the squash is slightly tender, stirring occasionally.

Stir in remaining 1/4 tsp. salt, lima beans, and chickpeas. Uncover and simmer 8 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Add spinach and coconut milk; cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro and lime juice. Serve immediately. Yields 8 servings.
