Vegan: Butternut Squash & chickpea Korma


I had a bash at another vegan recipe, however this one was unplanned, I was simple trying to use up some ingredients in the cupboards and fridge and Volia! It’s quite funny how much I learnt when I was making this curry, I always wondered how Korma was made and it is so so easy and like I said all by accident! I’m excited to try this as a non-vegan meal too.


1/2 butternut squash (baked)

1 tin of coconut milk (or evaporated milk)

1 tin of chickpeas

80g frozen peas

1 leek

1 onion

1 handful of sugar snap peas

1 clove of garlic

A few sprays of coconut oil spray

Spices – 1 tsp of  each

Turmeric, cumin, curry powder, parsley, coriander

- If you like curry a little spicier add 2 tsp of the spices!


1. Slice and dice all the veggies we need, and add to a pan with the coconut oil spray, fry until soft.

2. Add in the chickpeas and heat for about 5 minutes

3. Add in the butternut squash (after you’ve baked it – so it’s soft)

4. Pour in the milk and simmer for 10 minutes stirring thoroughly to breakdown the squash.

5. Add in your spices and herbs, season with black pepper and eat up!
