Butternut Squash Curry Soup
Being American, I grew up with parents who are Spanish, Italian, Irish and German. The true “melting pot” of cultures in one family. And, in our kitchen, the centre of every meal was meat. Imagine, chicken, steak, ham, pork chops, and roasts on the table every dinner along with side salad and green veg.
Now, I am proud of my mom and dad, that they didn’t cook the S.A.D. diet. (S.A.D. = Standard American Diet – fried foods, convenience, and fast foods.) But even though every meal was well balanced and nutritious, meat was still the main event. Fast forward 40 years, eating meat so much and so often has become less sustainable for our health and the health of our planet.
