Special Thanks to Pat McMahon for his recipe for:

Delicata Squash & White Sweet Potato in Green Curry & Coconut Milk
This recipe is usually made with Massaman Curry Paste and is Thai Muslim in origin. We always have many cans of Thai Curry Paste in our pantry and just happened to have a Green one open. Try it with any of the varieties; Green, Yellow, Red, Panang,
Massaman or my personal favorite Jungle. Just a note, Massaman Paste is the only store bought variety that is vegetarian.

1 White Sweet Potato, about 1.75 pounds
1 Delicata Squash, about 1.25 pounds
1 Tablespoon Grape Seed Oil
3 Tablespoons Green Curry Paste
1 Can Lite Coconut Milk
1/2 Cup Water
For the sweet potato-
Roast in a 350 degree oven for 35 minutes until cooked through. Remove to cool and peel and cut into 1 inch cubes.
For the squash and curry-
Wash the squash, cut off the ends, cut into quarters and remove the seeds and pulp. Cut into 1/2 inch pieces.
Lightly fry the curry paste in the oil. Add the coconut milk and water  and bring to a simmer stirring well. Add the squash, cover and simmer until tender, about 8 minutes. Add the sweet potato chunks and simmer until heated. Serve immediately.
