Method

  1. Heat the oil in a wok or pan. Fry the onion for 5 mins until softened. Stir in the red curry paste, then add the squash, coconut milk and stock. Simmer for 15-20 mins until the squash is tender. After 10 mins cooking, tip in the green beans.
  2. Stir in the pineapple and coriander, cooking for just a few mins until the pineapple heats through. Sprinkle with the coriander leaves and serve the curry in bowls with noodles or rice.

Really tasty, used thai massaman paste instead, fresh beans and a scotch bonnet chili and it was amazing!! Definitely one for the recipe collection! Didnt have any rice just a small naan for the sauce mmmm!

Did this for a dinner party as one of 4 dishes as one of the guests was a Veggi. It went down really well with even the kids saying it was nice and having some more. Very taste and easy to do. I use Pumpkin and Butternut squash just because I had both.

this is very healthy and tasty but I wonder if it should be 4 tsp of red thai curry sauce, OK for me because we like mild but it does seem very mild

I really enjoyed this and found it simple to make, however my boyfriend would not eat it as he found it too sweet even when leaving out the pineapple in his. Not peeling the butternut squash was an amazing tip, will save so much time and I didn't notice any difference in taste, thanks!

Pretty good, its hard to make thai food that is as good at it is in the restaurant. But it turned out well and tasted pretty darn good. I added chicken.

hey all, it says it can be frozen, when would that be, before or after the pineapple? thanks

Excellent, though I'd cook the green beans separately as they seemed to take longer than it said and were still a little rubbery :s

Tasty but I added a lot more thai curry paste and added the juice from the pineapple to add flavour and otherwise the liquid wouldn't have been enough.

Great! Boyfriend has requested it again, which is surprising for a veggie-only dish. I added a chopped red pepper and used sugar snap peas instead of frozen beans. Delish.

Absolutely gorgeous. I used asparagus instead of green beans as I didnt have any and it was delicious. Im a hopeless cook and it turned out yummy.

Really yummy. Used 400ml of coconut instead of half that & stock. Will definitely make again & made a generous amount

Really tasty but I would either pre-cook the green beans or add them at the beginning as they were not cooked come serving.
Question was then do I leave them longer to cook and have mushy squash or eat the beans as they were? Even so I will definatly make this again. YUM!!

Really yummy! Easy as pie too. I will definatley cook this again. It goes well with the 'Spicy Indian rice' recipe on this website.

I wont be making this again. Although very easy to make, I found it very boring.

I thought this was very tasty and went well with rice. The coconut milk made a big difference as did the pineapple.
