It’s time to dress up one of my favorite weekly dishes for Fall. This Butternut Squash and Chickpea Curry is a hearty, vegan dish perfect for warming up your tummy on chilly evenings.

It’s creamy, rich, and filling, but healthy! The sweetness of butternut squash pairs beautifully with curry spices. Honestly, I can hardly think of a better way to eat some of your five-a-day. It’s also full of vitamins which is something we all need while approaching winter. —MC
