Units Scale
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 3 cups butternut squash, 1" cubes
  • 1 cup chopped bell pepper
  • 1 jalapeno, with seeds removed and diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos (or reduced sodium tamari soy sauce)
  • 3/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 cups finely chopped kale (or spinach)
  • Salt to taste (I used 1/8 teaspoon)


Preheat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Add chopped onion and cubed butternut squash.

Cook for 5 minutes without stirring to develop some caramelization on the veggies. When it starts to brown, give it a stir, put the lid on, and continue cooking for another 5 minutes. Adding the lid will help speed up the cooking of the butternut squash.

Add chopped bell pepper, garlic, and jalapeno, give it a stir, and continue cooking for another 3 to 4 minutes.

Stir in coconut aminos (or low-sodium soy sauce), smoked paprika, and ground coriander.

Add the chopped kale (or spinach). Put the lid back on and continue cooking for 1 to 2 minutes.

Stir, and salt to taste (I used about 1/8 teaspoon of salt for the entire pan)!

If using, add optional toppings (sliced avocado, pumpkin seeds, hot sauce), and enjoy!

Leftovers keep well in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to four days. This recipe is also freezer-friendly, making it great for meal prep. Portion it out into individual freezer-safe containers and freeze for up to four months.
