Red Lentil and Squash Curry Stew

Leftovers are the best.

A “free”, delicious meal without the work? I’ll take it.

Unless of course you don’t know what to do with the leftovers and they die a slow death in the fridge. One day you walk into the kitchen gasping, “What IS that smell!?” only to open the fridge and find those leftovers, shoved to the back of the fridge to die.

My casserole now needs a hair cut and the black beans have morphed into stink bombs.

It happens to the best of us.

I vowed to use up my roasted squash leftover from my Butternut Mac ‘n Cheeze recipe! Last night, I found a recipe for a Red Lentil Squash Curry on Martha and used that as my inspiration for this stew. With my butternut already roasted this meal came together in about 25 minutes.

Leftovers turned into a new recipe? Even better.

IMG_2617

You start by sautéing a sweet onion and a few cloves of minced garlic. After about 5 minutes or so, add in your curry powder. 

IMG_2606

Next comes 1 container of broth. If you are using a low-sodium broth like I did, you will need to add more salt and vice versa.

IMG_2608

In goes 1 cup of red lentils.

Cook this mixture over medium heat for about 10 minutes until it thickens up.

Now stir in your cooked butternut and some greens if you’d like. I simply used what was leftover from my Butternut Mac ‘n Cheeze recipe. If you have uncooked butternut to use, check out Martha’s recipe for cooking instructions.

Cook another 5 minutes and serve!

A quick, stick-to-your-bones stew with a kick of heat.

And that 5-minute cheeze sauce recipe I promised you? It’s still in my test kitchen. There’s a chance it could die there.

Delicious. I added some carrots, and fresh cilantro and 1 jalepeno pepper to spice it up.
Yummy

Lentils and squash sound so wonderful. Something else you can do with left over squash – mashed, is put it in an omlet – delish!

Love the recipies and app. I have been a veggie for years. Recently I have elimated most dairy due to health factors. I made this dish for my lunch during the week but it turned out more like a soup. Is that right? It still tastes good. I added a little cumin as well. I followed the cup measurements exactly.

So I made this recipe last night thinking this is nice and easy…should be good, and Wow! It really packs a punch! I added lots of grated fresh Ginger Root – some finely grated, and some grated heavier as when you’d do carrots – and it was absolutely delicious combined with the curry and veggies, and with lots of zing! My husband wanted a second helping! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

My partner and I have just started eating vegan (vs. vegetarian) and Oh She Glows has been immensely helpful. Everything we’ve made so far from you site has ended up in the “Tested Keepers” recipe folder.

Last night was the squash and blackbean burrito; tonight was this stew. Both were fantastic, fresh, flavourful, and filling dishes. I don’t normally comment, but these two recipes were remarkably good. We both look forward to working our way through many more of your recipes.

Many thanks!

Oh my gosh this is delicious. I took a package of Beyond Meat “chicken”, pulsed it in my food processor a few times and added that. WOW.

Just made this for our meatless meal day. It was awesome! The picky 7-year-old not only ate it, but even asked me what was cooking when it was just onions, garlic and curry powder. Just a tip for parents, while the heat from the curry was minor to the adult palate, you might want to reduce it a bit for kid palates.

Did you soak the lentils before cooking them? Or do you just add them in as is… Thanks!

22 Sharise C April 30, 2014

This was quite nice. The thing I love about stews in general is that they can be so versatile. So just like your adaptation of Martha’s recipe, I adapted yours to what I had on hand. Specifically I used 1 cup of coconut milk in place of broth because it was open and needed to be used. Plus, I just love curry and coconut milk together. I also pre-roasted my squash in the oven and used leeks instead of regular onion. Thanks for a good base recipe, I had to force myself to stop eating it. ;-)

I subbed red lentils for green lentils and just simmered it for 15 minutes longer and it tastes amazing.
Definitely try this one.

I finally had to quit using store-bought broths because I couldn’t find one that agreed with my tummy. Now if I don’t have time to make homemade, I simply replace any called for in a recipe with plain filtered water and add some extra seasoning, like pink Himalayan salt or Bragg’s Aminos. I may be missing some flavor but no longer notice it, and my creations feel more wholesome and home-made to me. But caution to anyone trying it, it may not be your “cup of broth.”

26 Ron Wilcoxen January 10, 2014

I loved this! So much that I made it again a couple weeks after the first time. To vary the leftovers a little I added garam masala or some sriracha sauce. I will be making this again. Healthy, delicious and comforting.

It’s a great recipe. We made it yesterday. It’s basically a dal with squash. Delicious!! Today we are making the butternut squash chili recipe. We’ve got several gigantic butternut squashes so we may be able to try all 5 recipes.

Wow! This recipe is fantastic–the perfect way to begin the fall season. I had just the right amount of red lentils to make this dish. I’ve never cooked my own butternut squash before, so I was a little nervous, but all my fingers are still intact!

I did make some modifications though. Instead of broth (I’m very low sodium) I just used water. I also did not add the salt/pepper to season. Because I use each spice separately, I didn’t use the curry powder. For this dish, I used coriander, fenugreek, turmeric, cumin, and hints of cloves and nutmeg. My greens of choice were spinach.

This recipe already feels like an autumn favorite. I could eat this for weeks. So yummy!

How large of a squash do you need to buy to get three cups of cooked squash?

Mine was a large squash, about a foot. I used about 1/4 to a 1/3 of it.

I made this tonight, and threw in some roasted brussel sprouts and summer squash as well – so delicious. I made a version of this with green lentils last week, but I love how the red lentils get such a creamy texture. A new fall fave!

This evening I made the Red Lentil and Squash Curry Stew. I roasted the butternut squash first (following your Mac and Cheese recipe instructions) and used Curly Kale as my green veg. The addition of the ginger at the end elevated the flavour to a whole new zingy level. No leftovers for me tomorrow as the rest of my family also loved it!!! Thank you again Angela for another great recipe :)))

Love this blog! Having a great time trying out all the recipes, and this one’s next on the list!
A tip: If you DON’T have leftover squash and don’t want to wait around for it to roast, just stick it into your slow cooker earlier in the day, the squash will be roasted by the time you’re ready to make the recipe!

This looks so incredible. I have been so obsessed with all of these things lately. Lentils, squash, curry, greens. Such fall ingredients! This dish is kind of a mashup of 2 dishes I have made this past week – I made lentil soup one night, then loaded the crock pop up with butternut squash curry with spinach and chickpeas a few nights later. I’ll definitely have to try this recipe out, thanks for sharing!

Leftovers are the best, indeed!

I always say, cook once, eat twice. May as well make extras b/c I also say that planned leftovers save sanity. Those times when a kid is crabby, a mom is frazzled (who me? never…haha), or you just dont have time/energy to get a brand new meal started, leftovers save the day.

Your stew looks perfect. And impressive that you made it last night and less than 12 hours later you have edited pics, a recipe typed, and the blog post up. Bravo!

Lentils and curry are such a great combo!! Too funny about the leftovers…I was just talking to my mom about how we LOVE leftovers. I could eat the same meal for lunch and dinner the very next day and probably again the next, if there is any still left. My dad is weird about leftovers and sometimes Chris is too. Typically Chris likes them, but not more than 2x in a row. MEN!

That looks delicious, and a great idea for left-overs! I find myself a little over-ambitious when it comes to figuring out how much squash I can consume… This will be helpful! Haha

Oh the death of the cheese sauce. Don’t give up! Believe in the power of cheese! hehe I have a lot of things that don’t work out. I set the recipe down after testing it a billion times and come back to it a week later.
Case in point – the low fat, gluten-free carrot cupcakes I’ve been working on for the last 2 weeks. I’ll get it. I’ll get it.

haha :) I think I finally got it how I want it, but I need to actually test it on food as opposed to my spatula ;)
Goodluck with the cupcakes! GF is hard stuff.

This looks so incredible. I have been so obsessed with all of these things lately. Lentils, squash, curry, greens. All scream fall to me. This dish is kind of a mashup of 2 dishes I have made this past week. I made lentil soup one night, then loaded the crock pop up with butternut squash curry with spinach and chickpeas a few nights later.

I agree about leftovers…better and easier meals do not exist!

I’m not a huge fan of curry…how do you think it would taste if I used cumin instead?

138 Angela (Oh She Glows) October 5, 2011

You could try adding a little bit at a time and maybe some crushed red pepper flakes if you want it to have a kick?

Indian cuisine rarely if ever uses commercial “curry powder.” Cumin is on the right track, but you need to supplement with other spices. A great combo:

ground coriander
cumin
ground ginger (I never skimp on this)
touch of cinnamon
cardamom (green or brown or both, the exquisitest Indian spice–just inhale it)
fenugreek
finally, a touch (barest touch) of asafoetida powder (great with lentils)

You should add some chopped fresh coriander (cilantro) leaves at the end. Perfect complement to a curry

Did this make your house smell like Mumbai and hugs? I want some.

This was reallllly yummy. I added some chopped turmeric for extra yumminess. My house did smell like mumbai but I opened some windows and lit some candles and it was pretty much gone. Thank you for this delicious recipe!

I love when the inspiration hits and leftovers can be transformed into entirely new meals. Plus, the cooking time is almost always halfway done when you start.

With all the amazing shapes and sizes of squash just now showing up at our market, I’m bound to find myself in a similar roasted leftover situation. I’m looking forward to trying out your delicious looking stew.

This sounds really great – I love clever recipes that use up leftovers! And there’s something about red lentils that just screams ‘fall comfort food’ to me.
