  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 tsp minced ginger
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups sliced shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 fresno chile, sliced thin (one more if you like it spicy!)

  • 1 1/2 cups cubed butternut squash
  • 3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 14 oz light coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tsp red curry paste

  1. In a large pot, heat olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add onion, ginger and garlic. Sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. 

  2. Add mushrooms and chiles, sauté another 2-3 minutes, and then add salt and butternut squash. Cook another minute. Stir in chicken broth, coconut milk, pumpkin puree, red curry paste and chicken.
