Lentil and Cauliflower Curry with Roasted Butternut Squash Noodles
For those of you who don’t follow me on Instagram (although you should, because I’m doing a massive giveaway once I hit 200k followers – plus, it’s a good place to find daily healthy inspiration!), I’m in Florida right now.
I came down to Florida two weekends ago for my sister’s bachelorette party and because Lu was traveling for work and I had to be back in Florida two weeks later for my sister’s wedding, it didn’t make any sense to fly back to NJ and be alone without Lu and then fly back down a couple weeks later.
Plus, I love that Luca is spending lots of bonding time with his grandparents! I grew up with both sides of my grandparents living down the street, so I was constantly there – and it led to really strong relationships with my grandparents.
I remember hiding underneath the coffee table in my grandparents’ house so many times when my Mom would come to pick me up after spending the night there. I want Luca to feel the same way about my parents!
Needless to say, I’m happy to be here in Florida for many reasons – the sunshine, the extra set of hands, etc. Luca loves it too – he loves being outside and feeling the fresh air, I see his mood lift immediately when we walk him outside!
Anyway, the point is that in the winter in Florida, the nights aren’t as hot or humid as they are during the summer, and I LOVE how cool they get (and by cool, I mean mid 60s, haha!) After a few cool nights, I was craving something warm and cozy and thus, this curry was born.
Originally, I wanted to make this curry with cubed butternut squash, but then I thought it’d be nicer if the butternut squash was spiralized into noodles. And I was right!
The butternut squash noodles add a little sweetness to the curry flavors and offer a different consistency and texture, making every bite of this curry the best.
Okay, the baby’s waking up – I have to run, I hope you cozy up with this curry soon!
