      This is a really great staple recipe for healthy take to work lunch, using ingredients that I usually have on hand. I had never thought about combining mung beans with butternut squash! Next time I will amp up the spices, and maybe add some ginger. Thanks Chef!

      Excellent dish. The butternut squash was definately a star of this stew for me. I used a whole butternut squash, as mine was small. I also roasted it first, since it appeared to be very tough. I had to add salt, one teaspoon of soy sauce was not enough seasoning for me. Thank you. Will make this again.
