Why We Like It
Absolutely one of our top favorite curry meals -- someone brought this amazing curry dish to an Eat REAL America event and we fell in love with it! We could make this weekly and not get tired of it -- the over-the-top flavors in this one pot dish will definitely make your taste buds happy! It is excellent all by itself, but feel free to serve with brown rice or your favorite whole grain.

2 Tbsp olive oil
3 garlic cloves (finely diced, or 3/4 tsp garlic powder)
1 white onion (or yellow onion, chopped)
3 cups butternut squash (or sweet potato, cut into bite size pieces)

1 tsp turmeric
1 Tbsp curry powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp sea salt (or more to taste)
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 to 1/2 tsp cayenne red pepper
Add to a small bowl and stir to combine. Add to the pot with the vegetables stir and cook for one minute.
Add the Rest:

1/4 cup sliced almonds
1 zucchini (thinly sliced)
