Brussels Sprouts & Butternut Squash Curry

In my opinion, you can never have too many curry recipes- they’re the perfect way to transform any vegetables you have on hand into a comforting meal packed with flavor. This tasty curry recipe, inspired by, features tomatoes, butternut squash, and brussels sprouts, that are slowly simmered together in a perfectly spiced broth. This simple and scrumptious one-pot meal tastes amazing  served on it’s own, over rice or you could even enjoy it with  Toasted Cauliflower Rice like I did.  If you find yourself obsessed with curries like me,  try Acorn Squash and Spinach Curry or Eggplant and Black Eyed Pea Curry too.
