  • 1 cup chickpea
  • 1 cup coconut milk unsweetened
  • 2 cups butternut squash 1-2 inch chunks
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoon pumpkin seeds
  • 2-3 tablespoon coconut oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika spice
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric freshly grated
  • 1 teaspoon ginger freshly grated
  • 1 garlic clove minced and paste-like
  • 2 tablespoon chopped parsley for garnish


  • Heat up coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chopped chunks of butternut squash and cook for 5-7 minutes stirring.
  • Add in broccoli florets, salt, and pepper to taste and cook until florets become slightly soft. Stir in chickpeas, close the lid and let sit for 2-3 minutes.
  • Transfer the veggies to a 9x13 inch baking dish or 2 small ones, sprinkle pumpkin seeds all over, and set aside. In the same pan, over medium heat, add a little bit of cooking or coconut oil, add in all the spices from the list and stir constantly for 1-2 minutes.
  • Stir in the coconut milk, and simmer for 3 minutes under a closed lid. When ready, pour the coconut sauce over the veggies and bake for 25 minutes at 390 F.
  • Garnish with chopped parsley, more pumpkin seeds if desired, and serve warm as a side dish or a wholesome veggie meal :)


  • For a non-vegan meal - sprinkle grated cheddar over veggies and bake until cheese is melted.
  • Don’t overcook squash while on the skillet, it is better to place them in the oven a little bit undercooked otherwise you’ll result in pureed butternut squash.
