  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 medium (about 800g) butternut squash, peeled and cut into bite-sized cubes
  • 3 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 lime, wedged to serve
  • a handful coriander, roughly torn, to serve
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely sliced, to serve
  • 1 spring onion, finely chopped to serve
  • jasmine rice, to serve


  • 1 stalk lemongrass, bruised
  • 2 tbsp Thai green curry paste
  • 2 x 400ml tins low-fat coconut milk
  • a handful sugar snap peas, halved
  • a handful asparagus spears, tough ends removed
  • a handful green beans, trimmed
  • 2 tbsp frozen or fresh edamame beans


  • STEP 1

    Heat 1 tbsp of sunflower oil in a wok while you toss the butternut squash cubes into the soy sauce. Put the soy-coated butternut squash in the wok and cook over a medium heat for 10 minutes or until softened and browned, stirring frequently.

  • STEP 2

    For the green curry base, heat the remaining sunflower oil in a separate large frying pan. Add the lemongrass and Thai green curry paste, and fry over a high heat for 1 minute.

  • STEP 3

    Stir in the coconut milk, then reduce the heat slightly and simmer for 8 minutes.

  • STEP 4

    Remove and discard the lemongrass stalk. Throw the sugar snap peas, asparagus, green beans and edamame beans into the curry sauce and cook for 4-5 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked but still have some bite.

  • STEP 5

    Ladle the curry into bowls and spoon in the softened soy-glazed butternut squash. Top each bowl with a squeeze of lime juice, sprinkle with the coriander, add a few slices of chilli and a scattering of spring onion. Serve with bowls of jasmine rice.
