Roasted Butternut Squash Stew

"Roasted butternut squash in a mildly seasoned broth with onions and tomatoes, this butternut squash stew is perfect for a night when you just want to tuck and sleep in. This preparation, however, started off as a soup. Before putting the cooked stew through the blender, I took in one spoonful to taste and in that one bite I could taste the onions, the tomatoes, the garlic and the squash, individually. Each had its own texture and flavour and together they all complimented each other perfectly. And so I decided to put the blender back and enjoy the butternut squash stew as is, with all its myriad flavours and textures."

Our family loves to travel and to top it up we move countries almost every 2 years. Every time we pack our bags I am filled with new excitement of experiencing different cuisines, local produce and the stories behind the food. Coming from India, my cooking largely is Indian but it very influenced by what is available locally, the local cuisine and the bits I gather during my travels (I always keep a diary during my travels to note recipes, stories and other tips!).
